    About this recipe: A long time ago, an Indian lady taught me how to make this recipe. It's simple and tastes delicious with rice. You can use mutton instead of the chicken.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
    • 1 teaspoon garam masala
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh root ginger
    • 5 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
    • 450g skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, cubed

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in cumin seed and cook until they start to pop, 20 to 45 seconds. Stir in onion and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Season with turmeric, cayenne, garam masala, garlic and ginger. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant.
    2. Puree the mixture with the tomatoes in a liquidiser until smooth. Return the puree to the frying pan and add the chicken. Simmer gently until the chicken has cooked, about 20 minutes; add water as needed while cooking to maintain desired consistency.

    Can anyone suggest the best suitable rice to have with this, I heven't made it as yet - 04 Aug 2014


    I have just this second made this recipe. So quick and simple, even more so if my blender hadn't broken half way through. Absolutely delicious! Next time im going to add a chilli or two as i personally love spice, but im going to sit and enjoy this curry so much right now! - 10 Jan 2014
