  1. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan and the chicken pieces.
  2. Turn them to prevent them from sticking to the pan and brown the pieces well.

  4. Add the flour and cook a further minute. Stir in the chicken stock and bring to the boil.
  5. Simmer 10 minutes.
  6. Return the chicken to the pan and cook for about 30 - 35 minutes until the chicken is well cooked.
  7. take two-thirds of the cashews and process them in a blender or food processor until finely chopped but not to a powder.
  8. Add to the pan with the remaining whole cashews.
  9. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. If wished, finish with yoghurt and garnish with fresh coriander just before serving.
  11. Serve over Basmati rice. Cheers, Doreen Doreen Randal, Wanganui.
