Jamie Oliver makes chicken pukka yellow curry using chicken drumsticks on Jamie’s Money Saving Meals that works out at around £2.30 per portion.
Jamie says: “’Pukka’ is an Indian word for the real deal or authenticity, hence the name of this dish. It’s not because I’m a cocky Essex boy, nor, as some not-so-nice journalists once said, because of my annoying ‘estuary accent’ (whatever that means). Anyway, this curry is delicious – the meat falls off the bone, it’s great value and it looks phenomenal.”
The ingredients are: 2 onions, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, 2 yellow peppers, 1 cube chicken stock, 1-2 fresh red chillies, ½ a bunch of fresh coriander, 1 teaspoon runny honey, 1 level teaspoon ground tumeric, 2 teaspoons curry powder, 8 higher-welfare chicken drumsticks, olive oil, 1 x 400 g tin of chickpeas, 1 teaspoon tomato purée, 320 g basmati rice and 1 lemon.
