Preparation for Peanut Butter Curry

  1. To prepare your boneless chicken thighs without skin, use your knife to remove any extra fat or cartilage, then chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  2. On the stovetop, place a deep pan that is 12 inches in diameter and olive oil over medium-high heat.
  3. After adding the chicken, fry it for three minutes. After that, turn the chicken pieces over with tongs and continue to sear for one more minute.
  4. Include the florets of broccoli, red onion, and minced garlic in the dish. Continue to sauté the onions for a further four to five minutes, until they become softer.
  5. Paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, ginger, red chili flakes (optional), salt, and pepper should all be added at this point. Stir for thirty seconds, or until everything is incorporated.
  6. Add the chickpeas, peanut butter, tomato paste, and lime juice, as well as the coconut milk and 2/3 of a cup of vegetable broth.
  7. Simmer for five minutes at a heat setting between medium and low, then stir in the cilantro and young spinach.
  8. Continue to simmer for another 5 minutes. To make the curry more like a soup, stir in an additional 1/3 cup of vegetable broth. Try it out, then make any required adjustments to the seasonings.
  9. Serve over a bed of jasmine rice, brown rice, or quinoa, and top with chopped cilantro and peanuts, if desired. Enjoy!
