Indian Chicken + Cauliflower Rice


A little twist on a curry dish, this meal is what I would describe as more of an Indian Risotto, packed full of flavour as well as being low in sugar and saturated fat. I got the inspiration for this dish from “Lexi’s Kitchen”. This recipe would be good to make as a “Fakeaway” and is perfect for batch cooking too. Don’t be scared off by the large ingredients list – the spices in this dish are all staple spices that I would recommend to have in your cupboard if you like making any sort of curry.

Ingredients (2 people);

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 230g chicken breast, diced
  • 200g cauliflower
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1.2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 90g brown rice
  • 200g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • 60ml coconut milk
  • 90g spinach
  • Chilli flakes + parsley to garnish (optional)

Method (Takes approx 45 mins altogether):

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of butter. Add in diced onion, garlic, grated ginger, and cauliflower florets. Cover and let cook, stirring every 2-3 minutes until the onion is translucent, and cauliflower begins to soften.
  2. Add in all spices and chicken, browning the diced chicken breast for approx 2-3 minutes until just cooked through,
  3. Pour in rice and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Add in the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, and chicken stock. Cover and let cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until the chicken stock has soaked up and the rice is cooked.
  5. Add in the spinach and coconut milk and cook until the spinach has wilted, stirring for 1 minute.
  6. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Garnish and enjoy!
