Chicken Curry

  • I blitzed the onion, ginger and garlic in the food processor to form a rough paste (if you don't have a food processor you can grate them and mix them together).
    4 Garlic Cloves, Large piece of ginger, 4 tbsp Oil
  • After heating the oil in the wok, I added the cumin seeds and cooked for about 30 seconds before adding the chicken, onion, garlic and ginger paste. I then fried this for about 8 minutes or so until it turned a dark golden colour.
