A day in the sun.

Another week day post! After a day exploring Devil’s Dyke near Brighton and then Brighton itself, I’m feeling exhausted and a little sunburnt!

Here are some of the photos;

Devil’s Dyke is a 100m deep valley which legend has it was formed after the devil became angry about Sussex changing to a Christian county. In the valley itself you can find the devil’s burial place alongside his wife. Which if you walk around backwards, 7 times, holding your breath it is said you’ll summon the devil.

Legend has it that the valley was formed so the devil could flood the county, however he was scared off by an old lady with a candle, a sieve and a cockeral.

Today’s post is actually about the simple peanut butter curry that we made once we got home though. So here it is;

The ingredients
250g diced chicken
1 finely chopped onion
1 crushed clove of garlic
1 finely chopped red pepper
1 tablespoon of olive oil
3 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
1 chicken stock cube
1 tablespoon of balti curry paste
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon of double cream

The how to
1) Heat the oil in a saucepan and then add the onions and garlic and cook until softened.
2) Add the curry paste and then the chicken, stirring to ensure the chicken is cooked. This should take roughly 5-10 minutes and the chicken should be white.
3) Add the peanut butter, tomatoes and stock cube and stir well.
4) Add the pepper and simmer for 5 minutes before stirring in the cream.
5) We had ours with noodles and peshwari naan but you could serve with rice.

Great comfort food after an exhausting day!
