This recipe started out from a demonstration of curry making that I gave to a meeting of Yorkshire Ladies many years ago. It was inspired by recipe ideas from Pat Chapman of The Curry Club and has evolved out of that. It is essentially a two stage recipe that involves making spiced chicken and then a mildly curried tomato sauce. Also, do not be daunted by the long list of spices as you can short cut them out by using prepared curry powders per the first tip at the end of the recipe.
