How to cook… Chicken Feet Curry

Serves 6 as a main dish

Chicken Feet Curry is shared at bars in Africa while chatting to friends. This mild recipe is from a small restaurant in Johannesburg, South Africa. The best way to eat this curry is with your fingers and to suck eat piece to extract the slow-cooked flavour and the (small amount) of meat from the feet.

What you need
• 1 litre water
• 1kg chicken feet
• 5 Tablespoons oil
• 2 onions, finely chopped
• 1 red pepper, finely chopped
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon garam masla
• 1 teaspoon flour

How you make it
1. Boil the chicken feet for 1 hour.
2. Add the oil to a pan and heat to a medium heat. Add all other ingredients (except the flour) until the onions are soft (but not brown).
3. Turn down the heat. Add the chicken, half of the water and the flour, and cook for 10 minutes.
