    This is a Pakistani recipe for a spicy curry. My mum made this dish, and I like it very much. You must try it. This dish is best served with basmati rice, chapattis or naan bread.

    1. Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the chicken, and season with turmeric, chilli powder and salt. Fry gently, scraping the bottom of the pan frequently and turning the chicken.
