Prep time 15mins
Cook time 30mins
Serves or Makes: 1


  • 125 grams Chicken Breast
  • 50 grams Diced Onion
  • 1 cloves Crushed Garlic
  • 4 grams grated fine Ginger
  • 2 pods Cardamom
  • 1 stick Cinnamon
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 50 grams Natural Yogurt
  • 25 milliliter Semi Skimmed Milk
  • 1 pinch Chilli Flakes
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon Flaked Almonds
  • 1 Handful chopped Coriander


  • Step 1

    Heat a frying pan or wok with a few sprays of fry light. Once hot add the onions and reduce to a medium heat. Cook for around 10 minutes, stirring regularly to stop them catching. You want them to turn to a caramel brown colour

  • Step 2

    Remove from the heat and transfer half the onions to a blender. Blend together with the garlic and ginger and 2 tbsp of water to a light paste.

  • Step 3

    Put the remaining onions back on the heat and add the cardamom and cinnamon. Stir for a minute or two to release the flavours.

  • Step 4

    Add the chicken, the garam masala and the nutmeg and mix together well. Add the yogurt a little at a time, stirring well to mix it in fully. Then add the milk and 40ml of water

  • Step 5

    Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes. Add the chilli flakes and coriander and cook for another couple of minutes.

  • Step 6

    Serve with the flaked almonds over the top. Beautiful with a side of rice or naan bread.
