How to make it

  • Mix the Paprika, coriander, garam masala, cumin, turmeric, chilli powder and ¼tsp salt together in a small dish to form a flavour enhancing spice mixture;
  • In a large bowl, blend the tomatoes, yogurt, lemon juice and ¼tsp salt together to form a rich, smooth mixture;
  • Heat 2tbsp oil in a large frying pan and add the chicken;
  • Cook over a medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until sealed all over;
  • Remove and set aside;
  • Reduce the heat and add the remaining oil;
  • Add the onions, garlic and ginger and fry gently, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden and softened;
  • Add the spice mixture and chillies and fry, stirring continuously, for 1 to 2 minutes to release the fragrance and aroma of the herbs;
  • Add the tomato mixture and increase the heat to bring to a boil;
  • Reduce to a Simmer and simmer for some 5 minutes or so until sauce has reduced slightly;
  • Add the chicken and stir well;
  • Heat the mixture until simmering, then cook on a low heat for some 30 to 35 minutes or so or until the chicken is tender and cooked through;
  • If the sauce becomes too thick, simply add more yoghurt;
  • Add the green pepper and most of the coriander (reserve some for garnish) and cook for some 10 minutes more;
  • Taste for seasoning, garnish with coriander and serve.

    Just made this for dinner. Really liked it a lot!! At first I was afraid maybe it was going to be too spicy, but that was not the case. A perfect blend of flavors! Thanks, Don!

    Feb 2/16 Another fantastic recipe from Don. Loads of flavour. The only change I did was use turkey breast instead of chicken. I also allowed the mixture to simmer for a couple of hours. Will be making again.
