    • 1 skinless chicken breast fillet - cut into cubes
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon curry powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1 (400g) tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    • 1 tablespoon ketchup
    • 75g tomato puree

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the onion and chicken until the onion is dark brown, and the chicken is golden, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in the garlic, curry powder, cinnamon and cloves. Cook and stir until the spices are fragrant and the garlic has softened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chickpeas, ketchup, tomato puree, lemon juice, salt, black pepper and water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 10 minutes.
    2. Uncover, and increase heat to medium-high, and allow the sauce to reduce to your desired consistency. Stir in additional water if too thick. Garnish with coriander to serve.
