About this recipe: After scouting the net for a recipe I found too many variations so I experimented with basic ingredients myself, and came up with this version. So far I have had no complaints, even my 7-year-old daughter thinks it's scrummy. I have split the ingredients into 2 stages for ease, as this, like most curry recipes, is prepared in 2 stages.
Serve on a bed of pilau rice or with freshly made naan bread and garnish with a fresh sprig of coriander.
Suitable for freezing.
As with many curries, the longer you leave to marinate the meat the better. Also, once prepared, if you refrigerate overnight and eat the next day, the flavour will improve, making a much tastier dish.
This was absolutely delicious! The first Indian dish I have ever made and will be making it again and again! I used dried coriander, ginger and garlic for the marinade and I didn't need to use a blender. - 11 Sep 2011

As previous reviewer I also used ground spices. The chicken was lovely & tender after marinading overnight. It was quite quick the day of cooking as half the work was done in the marinade the day before. Did not strain tin of tomatoes & used less purée. Used chocolate instead of sugar, cooked all the chicken at once as have a big pan. Hubby liked it & so did I & will make again. - 13 Oct 2015
