What we need to get ready

  • 75g/2½oz vegetable oil

  • 1 onion, peeled, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled, sliced

  • 1 tsp chilli powder

  • 3 tsp ground turmeric

  • pinch salt

  • 750g/1lb 10oz chicken breast, cut into large chunks

  • 500g/1lb 2oz chopped tomatoes

  • 2 tsp ground ginger

  • 3 tsp ground cumin



  • 3 tsp ground coriander

  • 2 tbsp melted butter

  • 1 lemon, juice only

Right lets make it now

Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion and garlic over a low to medium heat for 4-5 units, or until softened.

Mix turmeric, the chilli powder and salt in a pan until well mixed, you can add the chicken pieces and mix well to cover. Increase the coated chicken for the skillet and fry for 10-15 minutes, or until golden- cooked through and brown.

Stir ginger the tomatoes, cumin and coriander in to the pot, then reduce the heat before combination is merely simmering. Include the pot with a lid and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring and introducing a tablespoon of water every so often when the mixture seems too dry.

Stir in the butter and increase the orange juice, to taste.
