One Ingredient Challenge - Cockerel Curry

I joined in with Working London Mummy's new 'One Ingredient Challenge' last month and was delighted to win an Amazon voucher, which came in very handy for Christmas presents.

This month the ingredient is Poulty and the challenge is being hosted by Laura over at How to Cook Good Food.

Earlier in the month we received a gorgeous Cockerel from Packington Free Range and whilst the white meat kept us going for a while I decided to freeze the dark meat to use at a later date in a pie or curry. Tonight I was in need of making a quick and easy tea and as all the fishfingers were eaten last night I turned to the frozen cockerel and decided to make a curry. It was a bit of a throw together curry and I didn't measure ingredients so all measurements are estimated.

750g cooked dark meat Cockerel
3 onions chopped
2 garlic cloves
Oilve oil
1 yellow pepper
250g Mushrooms, sliced
Mild Curry powder (I used the yellow stuff that smells like a chinese curry) - about half a jar
tin of chopped tomatoes
tablespoon Peanut butter
Frozen peas

  • Fry the onions, pepper & garlic in the olive oil until softened
  • Add the curry powder and cook for a minute or two
  • Add the tomatoes and approx 100ml boiling water, bring to the boil
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes
  • Add the cooked cockerel and heat through
  • Stir in the frozen peas
  • If there is too much liquid remove the lid until sauce thickens, adding peanut butter to help thicken
  • If there isn't enough liquid add some more water
  • Serve with boiled rice


The curry was very mild and perfect for the daughter still likes to add some Greek yoghurt to it though. The cockerel was lovely and juicy, just as it was when it was first cooked.
