Method

  1. Heat the grill. Put the potatoes in a pan of cold water, stir in the turmeric, then bring to the boil. Simmer for 12-15 mins until tender. Steam the broccoli in a metal colander or sieve over the potato pan for 4-5 mins until tender.

  2. Mix together the tamarind paste and mango chutney. Make a few slashes in each chicken breast and place on a baking tray. Brush with the tamarind mixture, then grill for 5 mins on each side or until cooked through and sticky.

  3. Drain the potatoes. Mash with the yogurt, korma paste and seasoning, then keep warm. To serve, stir most of the spring onions into the mash, then spoon onto plates. Scatter with the remaining spring onions and serve alongside the sticky chicken and broccoli.

I made the mash and served it with a prawn and vegetable curry. It was really nice and the colour was lovely. Will make again some time with the tamarind chicken

That golden mash looks superb, I might make that as part of another dish as well...
