So the team have been busy working on the cooking instructions this week. Carl's been in the kitchen with his stopwatch fine-tuning the cooking timings. Claire's been beavering away on her mac crafting our illustrated, idiot proof, instructions. I was nominated as chief idiot proof instructions tester - here's how he got on ;P
Prep - 10 mins
Arrows on pics show what you get in the Boom Korma curry kit
- Top left (blue bowl)... Boom Base™ re-hydrating itself nicely
- Desiccated coconut and almonds in leftover Gü ramekin dishes (tasty puds and if you put all your prepped ingredients in them you feel like a TV chef!)
- Boom™ Korma spice mix - Boom's house garam masala with some extra turmeric
- Boom™ whole spices including cinnamon, green cardamom and cloves
Cook 15 mins
Nice and easy! Oil, whole spices, chicken, garlic, Boom Spice mix, Boom Base - amazing how this thickens up, Boom Coconut and cream mix. Victory in a wok!
For the finishing touch some flaked almonds and a splash of cider.
Our idiot proof instructions are broken down into 4 steps. Step 2 was my favourite as it calls for the chef to "crack open a beer". Like it!
My step 2 of choice was Co-Op's own-brand Strong Dry Cider. Something this cheap shouldn't taste this good! It's proved a highly refreshing and tasty source of inspiration of late (fuelling many a late night Boom NPD session!). Turns out that it also goes well with our Korma... a slightly sharp, fizzy jet-wash that cleans and compliments the 5 C's (cream, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and coconut) in our Korma.
