Cumin Chicken Curry


One thing I miss about staying at my parents home, is coming home to hearty meals. I tend to get tired of my quick fixes. On the days where I’m feeling like this i usually make curries, I feel they are super “hearty”. I particularly like this recipe because it has cumin– which is my favourite spice I love the aroma it gives to dishes. So you will see that quite a lot of my dishes will have cumin. So I hope you do try out the recipe, if you do please take pictures and post them with the hashtag #inheatherskitchen on all social media sites so I can check it out. See you soon x
