I recently found a heap of recipe cards from the early 70s by Marguerite Patten. This is her take on the classic chicken curry.

When I saw James' Chicken Tikka last week, I just had to show off this recipe. There is no skimping, it's calorific and most probably how your mum made it.

This is a basic scratch curry recipe that can be adjusted to taste.

  • Whereโ€™s the boiled egg?

    • No egg included in the recipe - maybe the idea of eggs and curry was a bit too, um, outlandish? Although they were insisting on putting sultanas in - which is just not right.

  • Seems simple. I don't believe in the sultanas though - I hated it when my mum added them to curries.

    • I am with you on that. The great thing is that you don't have to include them, and you wouldn't lose too much from the end result. I wouldn't personally add them!

  • We had those cards. Remember mum had them in a special plastic box. That takes me back ๐Ÿค“
