Ingredients

  • 500 g skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp hot chilli powder
  • 200 g natural yogurt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 3 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped (optional)
  • thumb-sized piece ginger (grated)

  • cooked basmati rice
