Nigerian Chicken Curry

by Kitchen Butterflyon December 6, 2016
My Aunt would make this when we visited them in Benin – potatoes, chicken, boiled eggs, curry powder, carrots and always green peppers. I’ve learnt well and make this often. My children LOVE it, as do I for a quick, easy and good-looking chicken-in-sauce- dish. I like to think of Sunday afternoons as the perfect […]

Red Amaranth Sauce

by Kitchen Butterflyon November 21, 2016
It’s really my peanutty red amaranth saute blitzed.
