Chinese Chicken Curry

Chinese-style chicken with ginger, chili, and bok choy with crunchy toasted cashews.

  • Medium
  • Serves 2




  • ½ cup Tilda Pure Basmati
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 inch piece ginger root peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 small red chili, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 16 ounces chicken stock
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • ½ cup pak choi, shredded
  • ¼ cup toasted cashew nuts


  1. Gently heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan. Add the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli.

  2. Season and cook over a low heat for 4-5 minutes to soften. Add the flour and spices and stir well.

  3. Remove from the heat and blitz to a paste in a blender or food processor. Return to the heat and add the stock, stirring continuously. Set to one side.

  4. Add the remaining oil to a new pan and cook the chicken on a high heat, turning to seal the edges. Pour over the sauce, bring to the boil, cover, reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through. Add more water if needed during cooking.

  5. Cook the rice according to the on-pack instructions.

  6. Add the pak choi to the chicken 5 minutes before the end.

  7. Serve with the rice and sprinkled with the cashew nuts.
