Step 1

Heat a little of the oil in a large heavy frying pan.

Step 2

Fry the chicken pieces over moderate heat until they are sealed and have turned white. Remove them from the pan and set aside.

Step 3

Heat the rest of the oil in a heavy saucepan over a moderate heat.

Step 4

Add the whole dried chiles and fry until they start to swell.

Step 5

Lower the heat and add 1 tbsp of the Basic Curry Sauce and stir round.

Step 6

Add the chilly powder, cumin, coriander and paprika and fry gently, stirring continuously, for a minute. Take care not to burn the spices or the curry will lack flavour and taste bitter.

Step 7

Add the rest of the Basic Curry Sauce, the chicken pieces and salt and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is done. Stir from time to time and add a little hot water if the sauce starts to catch onto the bottom of the pan.

Step 8

Finally, add the garam masala and fenugreek leaves. Simmer gently for the last 10 minutes stirring frequently as the sauce should now be nice and thick.
