Peanut Butter Chicken Curry

Updated: Jul 23, 2023

You know what's interesting? I actually can't recall where I got this recipe from. It's one of those dishes that seems to have been passed down through generations, maybe from my grandma or my mum. It was just sitting in my recipe repertoire, waiting for me to give it a try.

And let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised by how incredibly delicious this curry turned out to be. The secret ingredient? Peanut butter! It adds an extra punch of flavor that takes this curry to a whole new level. Ah, now I remember a few fragments of memories—I originally created this as a vegan curry for an event. Instead of chicken, I used chickpeas and lentils. It's all coming back to me now!

If you're looking to make this curry vegan, simply substitute the chicken with chickpeas and lentils, and swap out the chicken stock for vegetable stock. Trust me, you'll be amazed at how the peanut butter enhances the flavors of this curry. It's a real game-changer!
