Chicken Curry (THM E)

I was taught this recipe years ago by a student of mine (back in the days of teaching aesthetics). She was from Pakistan and had a gift, a true gift, for making

the most delicious authentic Pakistani food. I’m forever in her debt for teaching me her family’s traditional Chicken Curry dish…. It instantly became my favorite comfort food. Though it makes my taste buds dance and tingle ever so slightly, it deeply soothes my soul. 🙂chicken curry

Cucumber yogurt Recipe
1 ½ cup cut up Cucumber
1 cup 1% Yogurt
Process until slightly chunky.

I used my KitchenAid Immersion Blender with the chopper attachment to make the Cucumber Yogurt.  I have had a few KitchenAid products that I’ve loved using (Stand Mixer, Food Processor to name a couple) but my Immersion blender is my favorite to date.  You can buy that here.
