Saturday Night Supper

We were recently on holiday in the Lake District and one evening I put together a curry for our dinner that my husband labelled "Keswick Curry". Yes, I know, Keswick is famous for the convention, hill walking and lakes but not really for its Indian cuisine- humour me!

I thought I'd post the recipe just in case anyone is looking for something easy to make for a Saturday night dinner. This serves two hungry people, three at a push, and it's yummy with rice and garlic and coriander naan bread.

Keswick Curry


1 tbsp olive oil or sunflower oil
1 onion, chopped
2 chicken breasts, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, chopped
10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tbsp Korma curry paste
1 tsp mild chilli powder
300ml coconut milk


1. Heat the oil in a wok or large pan and stir fry the onion until soft.

2. Add the chicken and continue to stir fry for 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the garlic and then the curry paste and chilli powder and continue to stir fry for 1 minute.

4. Add the red pepper and tomatoes and stir fry for a minute.

5. Stir in the coconut milk and simmer gently for around 15 minutes until the curry is the desired consistency.

I think I'll try this recipe in memory of my walking trip in the Lakes District. We stayed at a working farm and enjoyed our time. We also attended a small church in Keswick on Sunday. Fun memories.
