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

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! 

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 

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~

Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MAX. I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. They told me that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts.

Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000.
