Recipe: Curry Chicken *no coconut milk* // Beef & Vegetable Stew using *NEW* Tefal ClipsoMinut' Duo 2-in-1 Pressure Cooker


Hello everybody~

Recently, I was gifted Tefal's new Tefal ClipsoMinut' Duo 2-in-1 Pressure Cooker. Hence, I'll be doing a review and sharing 2 simple recipes using it! 

Of course, one of them is the curry chicken featured above and like what my title says, no coconut milk added! Healthier choice curry chicken you may call it. ^^ 



A short introduction about Tefal’s new ClipsoMinut’ Duo. It is the first 2-in-1 pressure cooker
and stew pot. I love how it is so space-saving with the 2 pots into 1 concept. 

The pot also cooks up to 2 times faster compared to a regular stew pot! Extra love for this feature! I no longer feel so stress to cook up a dinner after a long day at work! ^^ I'll share with everyone how long I took to cook these dishes compared to the time taken using my usual pots too. :) 


Curry chicken is something I grew up eating. I used to observed how my mother made it. She wouldn't use any pre-packed packet for the curry paste, she went all out to make her own curry paste! Kudos to my mother for the effort. :')

Of course, I don't have that luxury of time and patient to do that. I'm good with my curry paste. I don't have any particular favourite brand though. I go with what catches my eyes first. :P 

Oh yes, I believe that we can cook yummy curry chicken without the use of coconut milk too! So here's my modification to share with everyone. :) 

Ingredients:1 whole chicken, cut into chunks1 bag of russet potatoes, cut into chunks
2 carrots, cut into pieces
1 onion, chop into pieces
500ml water
1 pack of curry paste
10 pieces of curry leaves
2 tbsp coconut oil

Method:
1. Using the stewpot function, add 2 tbsp coconut oil, fry onion curry leaves and curry paste till fragrant.
2.  Add in chicken, sear the chicken pieces till golden brown. Add in potatoes and carrots. Mix well. 
3. Add in water, bring to boil. Once boiled, let it simmer for about 30 mins under low heat.
4. Dish and serve with baguette or rice~ 


So what's the trick to make the curry thick without coconut milk? 

1. Don't add too much water

2. Lot of potatoes! Especially russet potatoes. Potato is rich in starch, so when you let it simmer under low heat, the starch breaks down into the curry stew. 

Definitely, you can't expect the thickness to be as rich as coconut milk, but this is good enough for us! Noticed that I use coconut oil too? It adds that coconut fragrance to the dish too! :) 

How long was the cooking time using  Tefal’s new ClipsoMinut’ Duo?

I use the stewpot function for this and it took less 45 mins! I think if you use the pressure cooker, it might even be faster! :) 


Next recipe that I'm sharing is a beef and vegetable stew using  Tefal’s new ClipsoMinut’ Duo pressure cooker function. :) 


Notice the knob there? That's how you change between the functions! 


Ingredients
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp black pepper
500g beef stewing meat, cut into cubes
1 onion, cut into pieces
2 carrots, cut into pieces
1 eggplant,  cut into pieces
2 tomatoes,  cut into pieces
1 zucchini, sliced 
2 tbsp olive oil
250g beef broth + 250g water 
2 bay leaves 

Method
1. combine the flour and pepper in a bowl, add the beef cubes, toss to coat well. 
2. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in the pot. Add the beef cubes into the pot. Pan sear the beef cubes till they are browned on all sides. 
3. Add all the vegetables. All the beef broth + water and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a slow simmer. 
4. Cover and cook under the "pressure cooking" function. Cook until the beef is tender, about 1 1/2 hours, under the pressure cooker method. 

PS: You can use any vegetable that you like, potato and celery are good too! Generally I like my vegetables soft, so I'll throw them all in. You can always add you vegetable at a later timing. :)


If you use the normal cooking method, it probably takes at least 3 hours for the beef cubes to be tender, so using the pressure cooking method, time was shortened by half! 


Oh yes, Tefal ClipsoMinut’ Duo comes with a steam basket too! I steamed my pau using it as well! ^^

So it's more than just 2 functions, there are 3 ways you can utilise this single pot! *thumbs up*


Besides the ClipsoMinut’ Duo, Tefal’s also has a new Dark Ruby cookware range! 

The Dark Ruby range boasts of a High Density technology - an extra dense, non-porous
ceramic coating surface ideal for producing crisp cooking results with just the use of
a little oil.


I tried the cooking pan by making a fried rice with minimal oil and the result was amazing! Best of all, cleaning is so much easier with this new coating! Super love! <3

The Tefal Dark Ruby cookware range retails between $69.90 and $119 and is available at OG, Takashimaya, TANGS, Metro, Isetan and Lazada.

The Tefal ClipsoMinut’ Duo ($309) is available at Best Denki, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman, OG, Takashimaya and TANGS outlets, and Lazada.

Till next time~
^^

Cheers,
Lirong

  1. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
