Halfway Homemade: Chicken Curry with Spinach

Halfway Homemade: Chicken Curry with Spinach

It’s a good week when there’s a Maya Kaimal simmer sauce in the refrigerator — it means that one family dinner in the next five nights is going to be a complete no-brainer. I’ve tried lots of these prepared sauces over the years (my kids have always liked, or in the case of my youngest, tolerated curry) but Kaimal’s taste fresher and more vibrant than any of them. If I have a block of frozen spinach and remember to thaw some frozen chicken breasts from the weekend shop before I leave for work in the morning, it’s one of those halfway homemade meals I can scrape together in under 25 minutes at the other end of the day. My favorite is the Tamarind Curry (there’s also Coconut Curry, Vindaloo, Classic Korma, Tikka Masala and word on the street is she’s working on a shelf-stable line) but there’s not one in the batch that will let you down.
