  • 100 ml Vegetable oil
  • 2 Large Onions
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Green Chilli
  • Thumb-Sized Ginger
  • 400 g Chopped Tomatoes (1 Can)
  • 400 g Diced Chicken Breast



  • Heat oil in a pan over a high heat and add chopped garlic, ginger and a whole green chilli and stir for one minute. Then add the chopped onions and stir for 4 minutes or until softened.
  • Add turmeric, salt, garam masala, cumin, curry powder, chilli powder and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan and mix. Leave the mixture to simmer until the mixture has thickened. Stir occasionally to prevent the mixture burning.
    This took me around 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the diced chicken breast into the mixture and mix it evenly into the sauce.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and continue to cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes or until the chicken has fully cooked.
  • Remove the lid and add fresh coriander and mix it into the mixture. Then leave the sauce to simmer uncovered for 2 minutes stirring occasionally.
