Method

  1. Place the garlic, ginger and green chilli into a pestle and mortar and work into a paste.

  3. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli paste into the pan and cook for a minute.
  4. Then add the ground spices, mixing everything together and cook for 30 seconds. Now add the chicken mixing well and coating it in the spice mix.
  5. Fry the chicken until it becomes mostly opaque, then add the chopped tomatoes and greek yoghurt. Mix everything together and bring to the boil. Then cover with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes.
