Kosher Curry Chicken
Tomorrow night is the Shabbat and I won’t be able to post, so I thought I would give you something that is different, delicious and perfect for a growing family. In today’s world no one that I know has too much money. Here is a recipe that you can actually afford and meets all the other requirements. It is different and it is delicious. I have modified a traditional Indian recipe for use in a Kosher Kitchen. That part really is not important. What is important is that you do something that will make this Shabbat special.
Remember that it was Hashem who created everything that we see, do and are. We remember when we left Eygpt and we remember Amelek did on the way to Hashem’s mountain. Remember that He brought us all to Mt. Sinai and gave us His Laws. We remember how we sinned with the Golden Calf. We remember what happened to Moses sister Miriam in the wilderness. Most importantly we must remember Shabbat. To make it special and to keep it Holy. This is your special day and here is something that I hope will help you remember this day.
3 tbs. Canola Oil
1 Whole Kosher Chicken cut into 8 pieces or
10 Kosher Chicken Drumsticks or
10 Kosher Chicken Wings
4 Baking Potatoes, peeled and diced
½ cup Curry Powder
2 Onions roughly diced
2 inch piece fresh Ginger, peeled and minced
2 Red Bell Peppers diced
1 cup of Coconut Milk
6 cloves Garlic, crushed and minced
1 Hot Pepper, seeded and minced
Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
Mix the curry powder with some water to make a paste. Heat the oil in a wok until it begins to smoke.
Stir fry the onions, ginger and garlic until fragrant. Add the chicken and allow the chicken to brown a little. Add in the potatoes and the peppers and cook for about 5 minutes and then add the curry paste and mix well. Cook, covered, for about 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, covered, on low heat for about 30 to 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked.
Most importantly scrub the kids and put on your best dress. Tonight is the Sabbath and you are to keep it Holy. This really is your job. I doubt that your husband is as capable of doing this as you are. Make this and every Friday evening a very special Shabbat.
Light two candles and say a Blessing over the Candles. Say a Blessing over the Kosher Israeli Wine and Challah and especially Bless your children.
Serve this dinner with rice, a vegetable, a salad and of course remember where all this came from. All of this comes from Hashem but only you can make this night special.
