This traditional American dish was created in the nineteenth century, when India was considered to be the most exotic place on earth. The flavourings offered a welcome change from plain old chicken stew.
*Substitute boneless turkey breast for the chicken.
*Add 75g (2½oz) sultanas to the sauce.
*When in peak season, use fresh tomatoes instead of canned ones. Coarsely chop 3 peeled, cored and deseeded medium tomatoes.
*Tomatoes are an excellent source of the phytochemical lycopene, which may help fight heart disease. Lycopene is most available when tomatoes are cooked with a little fat, as they are in this recipe.
*Dried apricots are a good source of vitamin A and fibre. As they are portable, they can be a handy snack.
*Orange and red fruits and vegetables, such as mangoes, red cabbage and red peppers, are excellent sources of beta-carotene and vitamin C – both antioxidants that help to protect against heart disease and cancer.
