Leeks are a very delicious vegetable. It has a very lovely sweetness. I cook this very often. Sometimes I cook leeks potato soup which my daughter likes very much. But this time I thought I want to cook it differently for a change.
I was looking into my fridge when I found a few pieces of baked curried chicken from the previous evening and some red radishes. Yes, that would be a good combination of colours and taste. My family loves curry and I thought a curry-flavoured leeks would be irresistible. It did come out very delicious.
Here’s my recipe to share.
3 medium leeks (wash and cut)
1 piece of cooked curried chicken (cut into strips)
3 small red radishes (washed and sliced)
fried shallot oil
light soya sauce
It’s easy to make curried chicken. Just marinade deboned chicken thighs with enough curry powder and salt for at least an hour, best overnight in the fridge. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes. Slice it into strips when cold.
Heat up some fried shallot oil in a frying pan. Add the leeks and stir fry for a while.
Once it’s about cooked, add some soya sauce according to your taste, and then add the chicken and radishes. Stir well to heat through. Dish up on to a plate and serve hot with rice or any other dish that you like.
We really love this vegetable dish. There’s a beautiful curry aroma as you eat the leeks while the curried chicken is very tender and flavourful, combined beautifully with the crunchy radishes. This is again a very simple, easy and quick dish to cook.
