Throw it down like your favourite Indian restaurant, but in your own home 🏡


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 500g chicken breasts cut into chunks

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 red onion, diced

  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garam masala

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground tumeric

  • ½ cup tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons chopped dania leaves


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large sufuria over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

  2. Fry the chicken to the sufuria and cook until golden, about 4-5 minutes. Take the chicken out of the sufuria and onto a plate.

  5. Stir in heavy cream until heated through, about 1 minute.

  6. Serve immediately with rice, naan or chapati garnished with dania, if desired.
