A beautiful gently spiced curry, this one is perfect for all the family including little ones. Creamy and full of authentic flavour.

Serves 5


4 chicken breasts – chopped

1 tablespoons fish sauce

1 cinnamon stick

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 glug sunflower oil

1 tablespoon curry powder

1 onion – diced

Thumb sized piece of ginger – grated

2 cloves garlic – minced

200ml vegetable stock

1 teaspoon turmeric

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1 tablespoon mango chutney

Chop your chicken into cubes and season with salt and pepper. Pan fry in a little sunflower oil and set aside.

Pan fry your onions until they are soft and translucent along with the ginger, garlic and curry powder, turmeric and ground cloves.

Add your stock and mango chutney.

Return the chicken to the pan with the onions and spices etc. Bring to the boil for about five minutes to reduce the liquid.
