  • 1 Whole chicken 1.6 kg

  • 2 Onions chopped

  • 2 Stalks celery cut into small pieces

  • ¼ cup chopped shallots for garnish

  • Sliced capsicum got garnish

  • Enough water to cover chicken in large pot


  • 1.


  • 2.

    Place chicken in pot and cover the chicken with water, then remove chicken.

  • 3.

    Bring water to the boil and put the following in the pot, Onions, Celery, Carrot, Tomato, Garlic, Mushrooms, Capsicum, Cardamom seeds, Cracked pepper.

  • 4.

    Cook for 1 hour.

  • 5.

    Place chicken into pot and cook for 1 to 1 and a half hours and remove and set aside, Use 2 forks for this or it may fall apart.

  • 6.

    Cook stock for another 1 hour until all product is soft.

  • 7.

    Strain stock and discard product keeping the liquid only in a separate dish.

  • 8.

    In the same pot melt butter.

  • 9.

    Add curry powder and stir until curry is cooked, 3 minutes

  • 10.

    Add flour and with a wooden spoon mix the flour into butter and cook for 3 minutes.

  • 11.

    Add a cup at a time of the chicken stock and using a whisk keep it moving until the required consistency is achieved.

  • 12.

    You don’t want it too thick.

  • 13.

    Cook rice and have ready.

  • 14.

    Place whole precooked chicken back into curry sauce and turn constantly for 30 minutes.

  • 15.

    Place cooked rice onto serving dish and spread across plate,

  • 16.

    Remove chicken and place on cooked rice, Use 2 forks for this or it may fall apart.

  • 17.

    Using a large spoon cover the chicken with curry sauce and onto the rice.

  • 18.

    Dress with some chopped Shallots and slices of Capsicum.


I generally put some sauce in a jug on the table for those that want more curry sauce.
