Curry Hen With Spinach.. a basic Caribbean mixture (in my humble opinion). A dish which screams taste, easy to place collectively and finished in underneath 20 minutes. I’m not an enormous fan of rooster breast as I a lot favor the feel and taste of darker meat, particularly with bones. Nevertheless, if there’s one time you can also make rooster breast stand out in a curry, it’s now. Make sure to use child spinach leaves for finest outcomes.

1/Four scotch bonnet pepper (sliced)
1 heaping tablespoon Caribbean Inexperienced Seasoning
Eight-10 grape tomatoes (any tomato will work)
2/Three teaspoon salt
1/Three teaspoon black pepper

Warmth the coconut oil in a large pan over a low warmth, then go in with the shallot and garlic. Permit this to cook dinner on that low flame for 2-Three minutes, then add the slices of scotch bonnet pepper. Don’t use any of the seeds or white membrane surrounding the seeds should you’re overly involved in regards to the uncooked warmth. Then add the curry powder and cook dinner for Three-5 minutes.

Then style for salt and regulate to your personal liking. You might crank up your warmth when you have a ton of liquid on the underside of the pan. In my case it was finished to my liking at this level.
