Method

  1. (Note: the marinade will need to be prepared the day before so the chicken can marinate overnight.)
  2. For the marinade
    Blitz the chilli, garlic, ginger and vegetable oil in the food processor. Add the paprika, garam masala and tomato puree, plus the coriander stalks, and blitz again to form a paste. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl, coat them with the marinade and leave in the fridge overnight.
  3. The next day:
    In a little vegetable oil, on a medium heat, fry the onion, peppers and spices in a large saucepan. Cook gently for 10 minutes then add the tin of tomatoes and the yoghurt. Add the chicken pieces and simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked. Just before serving, stir through the cream and chopped coriander leaves.
  4. Serve with fluffy boiled rice and a mixed leaf salad.
