Chicken Curry Potjie

By WLR's Food Information Executive, Laurence Beeken

Traditionally cooked in a large pot, this Chicken Curry Potjie is a great way to be able to entertain and still enjoy a great meal by simply adding all the ingredients into a slow cooker (or into the oven on a low heat) and leaving it to simmer for a couple of hours until you're ready to enjoy!

Ingredients

5 pumps Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray
3 medium Onions
6 cloves Garlic
4 tsp Dry Garam Masala, ground
3 Dried Bay Leaves
3 tsp Coriander Seeds, ground

  1. Peel and finely chop the onions. Peel and crush the garlic. Cut the potatoes in half.
