Spicy Curry à la Pong

Difficulty: simple, Serving: 4, Preparation time: 30 minutes,
What you need: small pot, large pot, four small bowls, high tolerance to spiciness


The Curry

  • 500g chicken breast
  • 2 onions
  • 1 carrot
  • half an apple
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 hot pepper of your choice
  • 1 tomato or tomato purée
  • a small piece of ginger
  • 2-4 spoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of curry
  • 1 teaspoon of chili
  • 1 teaspoon of garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon of basil
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1 greek yogurt or coconut milk

The Rice

  • 1 cup of basmati rice
  • 2 cups of water
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of turmeric (optional)


  1. Take care of the rice.
    Add the water in a small pot with the salt and optional turmeric, heat it up until it starts boiling, turn the heat down a little and then add the rice. Make sure you cover the pot and keep stirring every minute or two. It should be done in about 10 minutes. In the meantime, take care of the curry.

  2. Time to choppity-chop.
    Get all those vegetables and the random fruit or two, then chop them up real small, real good. Do the same with the chicken, just chop them slightly bigger. Place the onions in one bowl, the carrot and apple in another bowl, the chicken in the third bowl, and the pepper, garlic and ginger mixed with the tomato in the last bowl.

  3. Fry those bastards up.
    Add the olive oil, let it heat up, then throw in the onions. Keep stirring until they turn a little brown, then add the carrot and apple slices. After they get a bit soft, add the chicken and keep stirring until the meat turns white. Afterwards, add the spices and stir for a few seconds, and then finally add the pepper, garlic, ginger and tomato mixture.

  4. Make it look delicious.
    After you let the ingredients mix together for about 10 minutes (remember to keep stirring, and cover the pot), you can finally add the greek yogurt (if you want it more creamy) or the coconut milk (if you want it sweeter). Give it a final stir, then turn the heat off.

  5. Serve that shit.
    Fill half of the plate with curry and the other half with rice; or just mix them together, if you so desire. Have your phone or a friend ready in case you can't deal with the spiciness.
