time I was on the Indian sub-continent, their top chefs were begging
me to open my own restaurant because of this recipe. Now the secret,
sinful ingredient is released onto the world: Coke.
lb chicken breasts, OR a chicken, cut-up
3 Tbs butter
1 medium tart apple, peeled & diced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 Tbs curry powder (or more for experienced palates)
1/3 cup raisins
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup Coca-Cola
3 1/2 Tbs flour
1 cup coffee cream, OR undiluted evaporated milk
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
Rice, cooked and hot
the chicken pieces. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the chicken
with a few celery tops. Cover and simmer about 1 hour or until fork-tender.
Drain and strain the broth, reserve. Bone the chicken and cut it
into 1/2-inch pieces to measure about 2-1/2 cups. In a skillet,
melt the butter/margarine. Add the apple, onion, and curry powder
and saute for 5 minutes, blending well. Stir in the raisins, 1 cup
of the reserved chicken broth, and the Coca-Cola. In a bowl, mix
flour with the coffee cream/evaporated milk, stirring until smooth.
Add with salt and white pepper to the onion/apple mixture. Stir
and cook over low heat until thick and creamy. Taste for seasoning.
Add the chicken and turn into a covered container to chill overnight.
Reheat in the top of a double boiler over hot water and serve on
cooked rice with a selection of condiments.
Provide a sampling of the following condiments for sprinkling on
top of each serving: grated coconut, chopped peanuts, chopped raw
onions, raisins, sweet pickle relish, chutney, chow chow, and/or
your chicken curry recipe.
