Fijian Chicken Curry step by step

  1. In a deep pot, heat 80g og Ghee on high heat..
  2. After a few minutes, add the onions. Fry them until the edges begin to brown (this shohld take only a minute or two)..
  3. Now add the ginger and spice seeds and stir for another minute or two, until the ingredients release a fragrant aroma..
  4. Add the meat and the spice powders. Combine all ingredients by working the chicken around vigorously for about 3 to 5 minutes..
  5. As to chicken starts to cook, stir in the garlic and lower the heat to medium low, cover and cook for 10 minutes..
  6. Add 350ml water and bring the mixture to a boil. As soon as the water begins to boil, lower the heat right down, add salt if desired… I use half a tablespoon of salt.. cover and let simmer for another 10 minutes. A long slow low-temp simmer will help develop flavours and let the spices mingle :).
  7. Can also add a can of coconut milk or cream to thicken out the curry and make it nice n creamy, especially if the chilis sourced are a bit hot!!.
  8. Garnish with coriander before serving alongside roti or rice. Enjoy!.
