Nutritional values

Fast food with lots of added value: lean chicken filet and peanut kernels provide plenty of protein, peppers support the body's defences with vitamin C and the hot spices boost the metabolism. And thanks to the coconut milk, the curry becomes nice and creamy.

Kochbeutelreis is a tried and tested classic for fast cooking, but it also comes with unnecessary plastic. You are not in such a hurry? Then go for conventional, loose natural rice. The cooking time here varies between 25 and 30 minutes.
