Serves: 4 – 6

1. Heat the oil in a large heavy based saucepan. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and sautee on a low heat for around 10 minutes until soft, translucent and beginning to gain some colour.

2. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

3. Add the spices, along with a splash of water (to prevent the spices from scorching).

4. Add the tomato puree and cook for 1 minute before adding the tinned tomatoes, coconut milk and chick’n.

5. Cook on a medium low heat for 20 minutes until thickened and creamy. Season well with salt and lemon juice.

6. Serve with a sprinkling of coriander and sides of your choice like rice, naan and mango chutney.
