  • 450 grams thigh chicken pieces (boneless, skinless, cut into 2.5 cm chunks)
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2.5 cm piece of ginger, minced
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 can (400 grams) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (400 grams) coconut milk
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh coriander, chopped to garnish

Notes from Rouba

  • Use a mix of mild and hot curry powders for a balanced spiciness.
  • Add veggies like bell peppers or peas for extra nutrition and colour.
  • Substitute sweet potatoes for a unique twist on the dish.
  • Use bone-in chicken pieces for added flavor, but adjust cooking time accordingly.


Step 1.

Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a casserole pot over medium heat. Add the diced potatoes and fry until they are golden brown on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the potatoes and set them aside.

Step 2.

In the same pot, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and add the chicken pieces, then cook until they are browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pot and set it aside separately from the potatoes.

Lower the heat to medium-low, add the chopped onion, and cook until softened about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and ginger and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

Add the curry powder, cumin, paprika, turmeric, and cayenne pepper, stirring well to coat the onions. Cook for about 1 minute to toast the spices.


Step 3.

Stir in the diced tomatoes, along with the juice, and the coconut milk. Add the chicken pieces back in, making sure they are covered in the sauce.

Add the water and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.


Step 4.

Add the fried potatoes on top of the curry, and continue to simmer for an additional 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are also tender but not too soft

Taste the curry and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.

Garnish with fresh coriander

This post is meant to be a recipe, but I can’t ignore what’s been happening 👉🏽👉🏽The last seven months have been incredibly challenging, watching thousands of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered in the name of self-defence 💔 It’s an excuse to ethnically cleanse the indigenous people of the land. But what I’ve seen in the last 24 hours has absolutely shattered me 😞

Families were told to move for their safety, only to be burnt alive. I forced myself to watch videos of beheaded babies—images that will never leave my mind. The destruction, the horrific scenes, and the screams are etched in our hearts and minds💔

And yet, our government responds with a mere, “It’s concerning.” Our tax money has contributed to the slaughter of these innocent people; our tax money has contributed to funding this genocide. 

I feel heartbroken and helpless. How can the world just watch? How can anyone say, “I’m staying out of this”?

I’m not ok. Are you?
With so many new followers here, today feels like the right time to reintroduce myself, as it also marks the 76th anniversary of the Nakba—a day of remembrance for the Palestinian people, including my family🇵🇸🌟 

I’m Rouba, 40+7 years young, and I’ve been happily married for 28 years🙏🏽 Those who follow my stories know my husband is quite the character, always keeping things lively 😅 We have two wonderful sons, and my mother-in-law is truly amazing—she often features in my stories ❤️

I’m a big foodie, with a special love for hummus fatteh, ofcourse the  Lebanese 🇱🇧 version 😉 it’s my absolute favourite! I believe Middle Eastern food is the yummiest in the world. 🙌🏼 And yes, I’m proudly pro-Palestine, married to a Palestinian. 

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s grandfather and his family were evicted from their home. This history is a significant part of our lives 💔

Thanks for joining me here, where we celebrate rich flavours, vibrant stories, and the resilience of a remarkable culture.

Welcome to my journey! FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸

I Say NO to international women’s day - I have learned so much in the past few months, and as I sit here reflecting, I realize that International Women’s Day has never been as inclusive as I once believed. How was I convinced otherwise? Where is the support for all women? Today, I see the humiliation of Palestinian women, their trauma, their screams for lost loved ones, their search for their babies under rubble, and their lack of basic necessities like food, water and  sanitary products. 

I can no longer participate in a day that acknowledges and hears only certain women while ignoring others. International Women’s Day was supposed to be for all women – this is what I was led to believe. Yet, the reality is starkly different. 

Today, I choose to say no to International Women’s Day unless it truly includes and represents all women.
