Where community and staff come together

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.

A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.

“The staff are absolutely amazing,” explains Glenda. “They go out of their way to speak to you, to make sure you’re ok.”
Hoko and Glenda feel very fortunate for the support they received when Hoko experienced some health issues. It wasn’t just the village staff who provided support, the whole community rallied around them.
“When I got sick the community itself looked after me,” Hoko explains.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here,” Glenda says.

This curry keeps well in the fridge for a few days and the leftovers taste even better the next day.

Ingredients
1 kg Chicken pieces, including thighs, drums, wings
2 cloves Garlic
5 cm Fresh ginger, peeled
1 med Onion, peeled and cut into quaters
1 Tbsp Oil
1 large Lemon, or lime, freshly juiced
1 Tbsp Cumin seeds
1 pinch Cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp Tomato paste
½ cup Cream, or yoghurt

Directions
Remove skin from the chicken if you prefer.
Place garlic, ginger and onion in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add 150ml water to make into a thin puree.
Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. When hot, add the chicken pieces and brown on both sides. While cooking season with salt.
When the chicken is nicely browned, squeeze over the lemon juice and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add the cumin seeds, cayenne and tomato paste.
Pour in the garlic, onion and ginger puree, cover the frying pan with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes.
Turn the chicken. Stir in the cream or yoghurt. Add enough water to cover the chicken, cover and continue to cook on a low heat for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Cooking time will depend on the cut of chicken you have used and whether it is on the bone.
Check for seasoning — you may need more salt or cayenne if you like it hot.
Remove from the heat and rest with the lid on for 5-10 minutes. The chicken will keep cooking in this time and will be more tender when you come to eat it.
Serve with rice and steamed seasonal vegetables.
