Chicken curry

Method

  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the onions until golden brown.
  • Then add the ginger and garlic. Stir well and briefly sauté.
  • Add the ground coriander, cumin, paprika, garam masala and turmeric. Stir and briefly cook to toast the spices.
  • Then add the tomatoes with the yoghurt. Stir and briefly cook.
  • Add the chilli powder and cardamom pods. Stir and then add the chicken and salt. Toss until well coated and cook to seal.
  • When ready, turn the heat down and add water to about halfway up the chicken. Stir, cover and simmer for about 10-15 mins until the chicken is cooked.
  • Then stir in the fenugreek and chopped coriander.
  • Serve with warm naan or roti and your favourite Indian accompaniments on the side.
