How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

FOR THIS QUICK RECIPE YOU WILL NEED

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 x roti
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • ½ x cup baby greens
  • 2 x tablespoons butter
  • 1 x teaspoon flat leaf parsley
  • 1 x tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 x tablespoon fresh pomegranate seeds
  • 2 x tablespoons toasted almond slithers
  • Nice’nEasy Butter Chicken Curry

METHOD

  1. Microwave the Butter Chicken Curry for 6 minutes.
  2. Place your roti on a flat surface. Using a brush, coat the top of the roti with melted butter.
  3. Once cooked, remove the butter chicken from the microwave and decant the chicken portion, onto the middle bottom of the roti. If you like your curry hot, this is the when you could add your fresh chillies or your chilli oil.
  4. Add the baby greens onto the chicken.
  5. Then add the flat leaf parsley (you can also use coriander if you prefer).
  6. Add a pinch of toasted sesame seeds.
  7. Add the toasted almond slithers.
  8. And lastly add the pomegranate seeds.
  9. Now, fold the bottom of the roti once, over the chicken.
  10. Then fold in the two sides of the roti.
  11. Then, continue to roll the roti until it resembles a warp. You will have tucked in the sides whilst continuing to roll the roti.
  12. If you are not certain that you can keep the roti closed, you can prick it closed with two toothpicks.
  13. Now, heat a medium size pan with the remainder of the butter and place your roti fold down into the pan.
  14. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, almonds and parsley or coriander and allow them to fry with the butter.
  15. Gently fry for 2 minutes on either side, or until golden brown in colour. Do not walk away from the stove whilst frying as the roti will burn very easily when left unattended.
  16. Once done, set aside and remove the toothpicks, if you’ve used any.
  17. You still have the rice! Take medium size ramekin layer rice with a tablespoon and compact it. Layer after layer, pressing down onto the rice with your spoon. In order for this mould to work, the rice needs to be pact very tightly.
  18. This is where you get to show-off! Take a large flat dinner plate, turn it upside down and place the ramekin with the rice underneath the flat surface of the plate.
  19. Holding both the plate and the ramekin, tightly pressing towards each other, quickly flip the plate over. Do not remove your hands from the ramekin or the rice will go flying and you’ll then be spending the next 20 minutes trying to mop the floor and wipe the walls!
  20. Now, with your beautiful rice mould on the plate, using tongs, place your roti wrap next to the rice and garnish with all the beautiful butter, parsley, almonds and sesame seeds from the pan.
  21. Finish off with some pomegranate seeds and your meal is now ready to enjoy.
