Method – Chicken Curry

  1. Put the vegetable oil in a large heavy-based pan and set over a medium-high heat. When hot, add the onions and cook on a medium heat until caramelised. This can take 20 minutes or so.
  2. Add the curry leaves if using, red chilli, ginger and garlic and cinnamon stick and fry for about 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes.
  3. Put the lid on the pan and leave the tomatoes to cook for 5 minutes or so until they break down.
  4. Add the garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, ground turmeric and the diced chicken and fry for 3 – 5 minutes until the chicken starts to colour, stirring well so that it is mixed with the spices.
  5. Add the ground almonds, yoghurt, water, salt and pepper and bring up to the boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer gently for 35 – 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  6. I cook it in a low oven 150°C with a lid on.
  7. Taste and check the seasoning and adjust if necessary.
  8. Add more water if necessary to loosen to your taste before serving.

Notes

This Chicken Curry reheats perfectly.

You can easily adjust the quantities and add some more chicken to make enough for two days.

Sometimes I brown the chicken in a separate pan while the onions are cooking to speed things up.

I like to serve it with boiled Basmati Rice and something green.

You can add some freshly chopped coriander to finish and a squeeze of fresh lemon.
