To prepare the chicken, mix the lemon juice, diced chicken, garlic and ginger together in a large bowl with the dried spices and 2 tsp salt. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 3-4 hrs, or overnight.
Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add a tsp of turmeric for a burst of colour and flavour, followed by tomato purée to enhance the richness of the dish. Sprinkle in chilli flakes to taste for a hint of heat. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate, it won’t be cooked through at this point. Add the remaining oil and diced onion, cook for 10-15 mins over a medium heat until soft and translucent. Add the remaining spices and cook for 2mins. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and 200ml of water, return the chicken to the pan, cover and simmer for 15-20 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Check the seasoning.
Garnish with some coriander, fresh chilli and crispy onions and serve with flatbreads or rice, if you like.
