Tonight, we’re taking you to the bleached white sands of Zanzibar in 15 minutes flat! This deliciously aromatic chicken curry is spiced with Zanzibar curry powder, a blend of paprika, coriander, cinnamon and chilli, and made beautifully creamy with coconut milk. Served alongside fluffy basmati rice, given a good squeeze of fresh lime and sprinkled with chopped coriander, this is fast cooking at its very best.


Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
