Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Swap This

Swap the chicken thighs for chicken breast or Quorn 'chicken' fillets, or use pork instead of chicken.

To make this curry hotter, add 2 finely chopped, medium green chillies and an extra 1/2 tbsp mild chilli powder to the onions as you're frying them.

Brilliant fake-away!
Paired this meal with the Pilau Rice recipe from PON website to give it the complete authentic taste.
Lovely curry! Full of flavour, not too hot!
We love this curry and batch cook it for the freezer! I always do it in the slow cooker and reduce the stock to 300ml so it's not too runny. The spice flavours intensify after freezing so if you don't like a hot curry adjust the spices to your taste.
I use Kashmiri chilli to give a deeper red colour and lovely warm spice to the dish. Snuck in extra veg with a handful of spinach at the end
Great recipe that can easily be tweaked to everyone's taste!
I make this with Quorn instead of chicken and it works really well, served with rice and a little mango chutney - yum!
A Chickens Vindaloo with PON Onion Bhaji’s
Wow 😮 so many delicious flavours coming through with this curry.
Adding sliced red pepper and some chopped spring onions works very well with this dish!
I added a wee bit of Graham masala just to add to the flavour. It was very tasty.
The process is worth the results!
The method looks like it takes a long time to make, but it is so worth the time and effort you put in to making it. If you prefer it a little less spicy reduce the chilli powder a little.
