Chicken Curry Dish

Here is a chicken curry dish, that I have been taught to cook by my parents, I have only started cooking since I got married.I find it quite relaxing and there is just something satisfying about eating your own cooking.

It might take you 2 or 3 goes to get it right but it is well worth it. I have used boneless chicken pieces in the dish, which I prefer but just as easy to use chicken on the bone.

Sood’s Chicken Special

  • Prepare chicken. Wash and then dice into square prices.

  • When oil is hot, put 1 heaped teaspoon of cumin seeds into oil.

  • Blend tomatoes, and then add to onions.
  • Purée the garlic cloves, blend the Ginger and chilli’s. Add to tomatoes.
