About this recipe: This is such a flavoursome Indian dish. Traditionally a starter, although I prefer as a main. The lemon, coriander and spices make the chicken so succulent. One of my all time favourites. Serve with rice, Bombay potato, bhajis, naans.

Serves: 2 

  • 1 medium onion
  • oil for frying
  • 1 medium green chilli (optional)
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 chicken breasts (good size), cubed into 1 to 2cm pieces
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • salt to taste
  • 2 teaspoons chaat masala
  • 85g chopped cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • chopped fresh coriander
  • lemon for squeezing

  2. Add the chilli if you are using. Cook for 2 minutes then add garlic.
  3. Add the chicken and continue to cook until chicken is 90% cooked (almost no pink left in the centre). Stir occasionally.
  4. Add the tomato purée, garam masala and salt to taste. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring gently.
  5. Add the chaat masala and cook for 2 minutes, stirring.
  6. Add the chopped cucumber and tomatoes and continue to stir.

Chaat masala may be difficult to find, but the main supermarkets do stock it online and you can also find it in Asian shops.
