Isn’t it nice to look forward to lunch? Today we are, because we made this dish last night and there’s a Tupperware full of leftovers in the fridge that we’re due to dig into in 30 (long) minutes.
But we will, so we can tell you that this easy-to-make tasty recipe is taken from the new, free (*but donations welcome) Happy Healthy Heart Cookbook, put together by Heart Research UK, a charity that funds medical research, education and health campaigns. It’s a collection of starters and mains from food bloggers and professionals, which Heart Research UK have assessed and OKed as part of a healthy lifestyle.
The cookbook features plenty more curries and dishes inspired by Indian cuisine (we’re planning on turning our hand to the vegetarian mulligatawny soon), and more besides – we’ve got our eye on the couscous bowl with harissa chicken.
But we started with this one because we’re a sucker for anything you can wrap up and eat with your hands. It’s also a dish that doesn’t take a lot of active cooking time – the 20 minutes of prep time is pretty generous – but it does take a fair bit of time to simmer and then reduce, so it might not be best for a midweek meal unless you get home early or don’t mind eating late.
Right, that’s it. We can’t hold out any longer. Never go food shopping on an empty stomach and never write about recipes before lunch. You can find the recipe below and download the cookbook here – we’re making for the microwave.

- A light spray of rapeseed oil
- 1 large red onion, peeled and finely chopped
- Garlic cloves to taste, peeled and crushed
- 200g skinless, boneless chicken thigh fillets, sliced

- Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add the onion and fry for a few minutes until softened.
- Add the garlic and stir for a further minute, then add the chicken and cook, stirring until browned.
- Stir in the curry paste, tomatoes, potatoes and half a can of water. Season well with plenty of black pepper, then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes are just cooked.
- Remove the lid and simmer for a further ten to 15 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the sauce is sticking to the potatoes and chicken.
- Stir in the peas and cook until they are ready, then serve with warmed wraps or chapatis and low-fat yogurt.
