Serve 4 Preparation time: 15 min Cooking time: 15 min

  • 30 ml (2 T) oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 15 ml (1 T) ginger paste
  • 10 ml (2 t) ground coriander
  • 5 ml (1 t) ground cumin
  • 2 ml (½ t) turmeric
  • 2 ml (½ t) chilli powder
  • 10 ml (2 t) roasted masala
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 375 ml (1 ½ c) water
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped (optional)

Mix the oil and onions in a microwave-proof bowl and microwave for 3 minutes on full power.

Grind the cooked onions to a smooth paste with a mortar and pestle and set aside. Grind the tomato, garlic and ginger to a smooth paste with the mortar and pestle.

Mix the two pastes in a microwave-proof bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Mix in the spices and chicken cubes and microwave for a further 2 minutes. Stir in the water and microwave for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.

Stir in green chillies (if using) for more intense heat and serve with naan bread or rice and plain yoghurt.
