Pixie’s version of B’s Jamaican Chicken Curry
You will need:
Potatoes (however many you like in your curry, chopped into quarters)
Cumin Seeds, Yellow Mustard Seeds, Black Peppercorn, Fenugreek Seeds, Pimento, Cayenne, Whole Cloves, Nutmeg, Ginger powder, Tumeric powder, Coriander Seeds.
Grind the seeds to powder then add the rest of the powder spices.
Cooking the Chicken
Rub the spices over the chicken pieces, cover and let it marinade for half hour to an hour in the fridge.
Chop up an onion and 3 to 4 cloves of garlic.
Heat up some oil in a big pot, add about 1 tablespoon of curry powder, stir for about 30secs then add onion and garlic.
Add peppers to the mix, when they’re soft, add the chicken pieces.
With the chicken pieces, you can:
(1) cook them first in another pot then add to main pot;
(2) add them after the sauce has thicken; or
(3) add them directly to the onion, garlic and peppers.
Whichever way works for you.
Add boiling water to the pot, enough to make a sauce or if you’re adding after the chicken, enough to cover the chicken pieces.
Then add about 4 tablespoons of curry powder and about 2 tablespoons of sea salt.
Stir and bring to boil.
Check for taste and add salt to your taste.
Then cover and let it simmer and check in half hour.
Add potatoes and cook for another half hour.
You can either let it simmer for another half hour once potatoes are cooked or serve once they are cooked.
I let it simmer for another half hour! 🙂
Serve with steamed rice or if you like, some rice and peas.
I have a ‘quick and easy’ way of making rice and peas, let me know if you would like it.

Pixie’s Wontons recipe
500 grams pork mince
Prawns (I bought a handful and chopped them as finely as I could)
Soya sauce (I prefer to use the dark variety than the light one)
White wine vinegar (I use the Japanese version that I have in the pantry)
(1) In a big bowl, mix pork mince and prawns.
(2) Add about a tablespoon of soya sauce, half a tablespoon of sesame oil, a dash of white wine vinegar and a pinch of sugar to the mix (note that these are approximate measurements!). I didn’t add salt but you may like to for your tastebuds!
(3) Mix them all up then let it marinade for an hour or two if you can’t wait or what I did was leave it marinade overnight in the fridge.
(4) When you’re ready to wrap up some wontons, sprinkle some cornflour to the marinated mixture and mix well.
(5) All that is left to do is wrap them up! I put about 1 teaspoon of the mixture each wrapper. Try not to put too much as the wrappers are thin and will burst!
(6) Deep fry the lil parcels, boil or steam! Enjoy!
