Healthy Tandoori Curry Batch Cook

Healthy Tandoori Curry Batch Cook

Throughout the year, I typically eat five times a day with a diet along these lines:

Meal 1: Eggs, Smoked Salmon, Oats

Meal 2: Chicken and Rice

Meal 3: Chicken and Rice

Meal 4: Chicken and Rice

Meal 5: Whey, Peanut Butter, Oats

For meals 2 to 4, what I’ll do is batch cook a load of chicken and then divide it up into the necessary portions. Today’s recipe will be based off a batch cook of 500g chicken (or tofu for vegetarians & vegans) for three meals of the day.

Time to prepare: 5 minutes

Time to cook: 30 minutes

Serves: 2 to 4 meals (depending on protein requirements)


  • 2-3 sprays of 1 kcal spray
  • 1 whole onion – chopped finely (optional)
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic (optional)
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp coriander & cumin mix
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger or ginger powder
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder (to taste, optional)
  • 100g tomato passata (or can of chopped tomatoes)
  • 500g chicken breast (or tofu for vegetarians & vegans)
  • 1 tsp tandoori masala powder
  • Chopped coriander leaf (optional)


  • Dry cook the onions, garlic and sea salt in a pan until onions begin to soften (if onions begin to stick add a little bit of water)
  • Once softened, add spices (coriander & cumin mix, turmeric, ginger) and tomato passata (or chopped tomatoes)
  • Stir for a few minutes and then add the chicken
  • Add the Tandoori masala, stir it into the chicken, turn the heat up to high-medium and close the lid for 3-4 minutes. Check chicken intermittently.
  • After 3-4 minutes, turn the heat down and let it cook for 15 minutes. Stir as necessary.
