Pistachio butter chicken curry (Daring Cook Challenge – Bonus Try)

The Daring Cook Challenge of this month is nut butter, in a savory recipe.

The July Challenge is hosted by Margie of More Please and Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies.

That was the tomato curry recipe… but the tomatoes didn’t find their way. So ? Well, let’s post it.

Pistachio butter made from salted roast pistachio :



Curry spice are simply cardamom seeds + coriander seeds + 1/2 green chili pepper, pasted with the pistachio butter.
I marinated the chicken one night in awamori sweet sake. In a little oil, garlic, ginger, a few cardamom pods, onion, then the chicken and its marinade, half of the paste + 2 glasses of water.
A bit later, a few okras.
Then the second half of paste + water + a little corn starch.

Before serving, I added celery (stalks and leaves), basil, a few more pistachios.

As you see, it’s not so light, so it’s nice to have the greens to balance.

  3. Wow! Both of these recipes are amazing, and the color is so brilliant. Great pictures!

    Celery and basil combination must be so fresh feeling; I’m curious to try it now. 😀
