Altered the method slightly, as I cooked it in the slow cooker. Used 6 skinned chicken thighs, no corn flour. Only change to method was step 4, when I put browned chicken thighs on bottom plus all the ingredients in a slow cooker for five hours on medium. Leave lid off for last hour to thicken sauce. Added natural yogurt, spinach, and dried cranberries near the end. A new favourite, enjoyed by everyone who tried it

This is a very authentic recipe and is improved by adding a little sweet mango chutney to cut through the tomato.

Hi there, quick question, should the amounts of these ingredients be in tsp, not tbsp?: 2 tbsp mild chilli powder 1 tbsp mild curry powder 1 tbsp ground cumin 1 tbsp ground turmeric 2 tbsp gram massala
