Rihanna’s: Bajan Chicken Curry

By Vera Fourie

POP icon, designer, actress, make-up maven: is there anything Rihanna isn’t good at? She’s also a girl’s girl. She dislikes the idea of promoting ‘perfection’


1 Whole chicken, cut-up
4 Potatoes, diced
12 Tablespoons of curry paste
4 Tablespoons of Maggi seasoning
4 Tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
2 Cups of water
1 Whole onion, chopped or diced to suit
3 Stalks of green onions, chopped
8 Cloves of garlic, chopped
Thyme to taste
Lemon juice (enough to marinate the chicken)

Clean and cut up the chicken, and marinate it in lemon juice for 30 mins to one hour; then combine all of the ingredients with the chicken (with the exception of the oil, curry and garlic). Heat the oil over medium heat and when it becomes hot add the garlic. When the garlic has slightly burnt turn the pan down to low; allow the oil to cool for a few minutes and add 12 tablespoons of curry. (If you do not let the oil cool the curry will burn!) When the curry begins to bubble, add the chicken and potatoes and stir until they’re covered in curry. Allow the ingredients to cook for five minutes then and add water. Cover the pot or skillet and allow curry to cook for 30-45 minutes or until meat is cooked.
