Make a Jamaican Curry with Tropical Sun

Tropical Sun Curry If there is one thing my family will never say no to trying it has to be food, so when I was asked if I fancied trying out a Curry using Tropical Sun ingredients everyone was fighting over who got to have a bite.

Ash was actually at work when we did this so it was left down to me and my parents my Mum being the chef and my Dad chief taster to give this a whirl. Tropical Sun sent us 3 ingredients to help us cook up a Jamaican curry; Coconut Milk, Caribbean Mild Curry Powder and Caribbean Curry Paste.

We do like chicken curries so we have used chicken breast and brown rice to accompany the dish as shown in the picture. The sauce has of course otherwise been made of the above ingredients which make for a mouth-watering spicy curry.

It was really simple to put together, very much an add them together and mix them up set up before adding to the chicken which helps the flavour soak into the pieces as it cooks.

We are all a bit different in our tastes when it comes to curry my Dad loves a hot curry the hotter the better for him, while my Mum is a middle ground person and I’m the wimp at the bottom of the pile liking the mildest one possible – sadly for me while this had an amazing flavour it was a little on the hot side for me, my Mum again found it to have a lovely flavour and just managed to get by with it when it came to the heated kick, so of course this was one my Dad really liked, even saying he would go hotter with it. (Just to let you know how much we used – we added in all the paste with some powder + the full tin of coconut milk)

I would love to try this again with slightly less powder / paste and more coconut milk used to try and cool down the heat a little, as I really did think it had an amazing flavour if I could have just got past the burning, my parents would also love to tuck into this again.

So overall it gets a thumbs up from us.

    OMG, that looks so good I almost licked the screen! The only thing is that I would have to find a substitute for the coconut milk as I’m allergic to coconut. I wonder what would work? Almond milk maybe?

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      Hmm it might do or perhaps rice milk? If you have a play around you will have to let me know xx
