This Friday I made some chicken curry. Again. Check out my own recipe here.
This time I’ve made it using an ingredient that became my best friend especially when i do not have time to cook from scratch or i am too tired to do it. I do cheat sometimes, rarely, but I do.

So, I went to ASDA (supermarket in London) and found this little guy called Sharwood’s ( brand of Premier Foods):

Sharwood's Butter chicken cooking sauce

Ingredients: Water, Tomatoes (14%), Cream (Milk), Fried Onions (6%) (Onions, Rapeseed Oil), Tomato Puree (4%), Modified Maize Starch, Rapeseed Oil, Sugar, Butter (2%) (Milk), Ginger Puree, Spices, Salt, Garlic Puree, Ground Coriander, Coriander, Citric Acid, Ground Cardamom.
More about Sharwood’s sauces here and here.

The jar is suitable for 3 portions.

Here are the other ingredients I used and the steps i took:


  • 4 chicken breasts (600 gr)
  • olive oil
  • rice (300 gr)
  • salt, pepper

Kitchen tools

  • wok
  • knife
  • chopper

How I did it

Step 1

Get the chicken and the rice ready
First step's first! Chop the chicken breast in one-bite pieces. Season with salt, pepper. At the same time drop some olive oil into the wok and then add the chicken breat inside for a proper stir fry.

Mix the chicken breast so that the one-bite pieces get a beatiful golden color on all sides. Healthy chicken breast recipe

Step 3

Ready to serve and eat! 20 minute later i drained the water from the pot with the rice. Seasoned the rice with salt -if you want, you can add some rice vinegar too to amplify the flavour. Then I took the plate, added 3 table spoons of rice and 3 table spoons of the chicken curry with Sharwood's sauce: Chicken curry with rice cook to smile Chicken curry with Sharwoods sauce on rice bed

“Sarmale”, a Romanian dish 100%?

Maybe, maybe not. But with or without “mamaliga” (that’s polenta) or “smantana” (that’s “cream” in Romanian), sarmelele can be found in Romania, (in Bucovina and Moldova under the name of “găluci” or “găluște”) and have been spread around the world (e.g: Turkey, Poland, Italy, Croatia etc.) where this dish is a delight, adapted to the culture of each country.
