“This has to be the best home-made chicken curry I have tasted / made. It's a recipe that a friend gave me after she made it for a dinner party. Since said party, almost all guests have either asked for the recipe or have asked her to make it for them. It's not your average curry - it's like a cross between a Korma and a Tikka Masala. Tip: I once used reduced-fat coconut milk to save on calories etc but it really didnt taste as good as it does with the full fat stuff! So dont cut corners! You can also vary the amount of chilli you put in to suit your personal taste! The following recipes serves 4 people.”

  1. Finely chop the garlic, chilli's and ginger and fry for approx 1 minute in 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil in a large wok / casserole dish.
  2. Finely chop the onion and add to the above, frying for 10 minutes until the onions are transparent. Be sure not to let them brown. Halfway through cooking, add the chilli powder, turmeric and curry powder.
