This recipe was requested in my Actifry Facebook Group. It’s one i’ve made a handful of times with great results – you can switch up the vegetables if you’d like – adding water chestnuts or peas would work great too. You can of course use beef, tofu or no veg at all too if you’d prefer.
I use lean chicken breast and fresh vegetables for a truly delicious, guilt-free dinner. It can be enjoyed any day of the week as a fake-away treat you need not worry about – it’s both healthy and easy to make.
This Actifry Chinese curry uses the beloved Mayflower curry powder. It’s such a popular curry powder because it’s really cheap (£1) and widely available (home bargains, Iceland or B&M is where I get mine). The powder is slimming world friendly making this recipe slimming world friendly and guilt free too! The mayflower powder comes in a couple of levels of spice – I enjoy all of them but tend to opt for the medium.
I have linked the Mayflower sauce in the recipe card below if you’d like to purchase it from Amazon. It does work out more expensive from Amazon (£2.65 per tub rather than £1 a tub in B&M) but if your closest store is far away or has paid for parking it might be easier to buy online for you.
Cook this Chinese curry with the paddle in and use the ‘chicken’ mode if you own a Genius XL – else, the normal mode for any other Actifry model.
You can easily freeze this curry if you manage to have any leftovers – just thaw overnight in the fridge when you want to defrost it and reheat it thoroughly in the microwave or on the hob.
