I am taking part in a Red Tractor challenge , what is Red Tractor I hear you cry , it isn't a children story for one. What red Tractor actually is is an assurance mark that shows you that food has been produced responsibly to some of the most comprehensive and respected food and farming standards in the world. The union jack in the logo also indicates that your food has been farmed, processed and packed in the UK by Trusted producers
You can find Red tractor assurance on a wide range of UK farmed food including meat, poultry ,dairy products, fresh produce and crop based products like rapeseed oil,sugar and even beer mmmmm Beer .
The recipe below takes some of the favourite Red Tractor Assured ingredients into a tasty curry recipe for you , the slow cooker is very much like the workhorse of the kitchen it takes the strain for you and does all the hard work whist you are doing other activities etc.
Chicken And Sweet Potato Curry
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 4-8 hours depending on your slow cooker setting
peeled and cut into half moons
3 cm piece fresh root ginger or you could use ground ginger
3 tbsp of Indian curry paste ( mine was mild which me and my son prefer thought Mr T has no fear when it comes to hot curry tastes)
Westin Gourmet chicken breasts 3 which I was using for the purposes of this challenge.
I can of coconut milk.
Juice and zest of 2 limes
15g fresh coriander ( optional)
2 large sweet potatoes , peeled and cut in 3cm pieces
100g green beans, timed and cut in half
To serve, cooked basmati rice for this dish I went with a lemon Basmati
Once you have all your Ingredients together first add the coconut milk to the slow cooker then add the paste and gently stir. Next add all your other ingredients another gentle stir . after all this is done go and relax ! My favourite method is watching Mr T cutting the grass ...
If you wish to thicken the curry you can add some corn flour .
