To add to my comment below, the rice suggestion worked really well and made the dish more substantial as a main meal.

This was absolutely delicious, myself and my Husband really enjoyed it. I did have to add some water to the pan during step 2 to loosen the mixture which worked well. I served it with corn on the cobs. It also works well as a meat free meal if you replace the chicken with paneer - I actually preferred this to the meat version!

My husband made this for our family last night. It was so delicious, and amazingly healthy too. We thought it was a little like a curry, so I guess you could serve with rice or naan bread too?

I used this for the ingredients to coat the chicken, but had them in pittas with salad and mint yoghurt. Quick and easy mid-week meal!

We used chapatis the second time we did this recipe and they really complemented the dish. This is definitely one of my favourite dishes from bbc good food.

Tasty and simple to make. I used wholemeal wraps rather than rotis and add rocket and a side of chips.

Very nice and simple to make, it was quite messy eating it with the wraps though. I think next time I would use pitta breads. Also I'd suggest some salad leaves to serve with it for some crunch, texture, and freshness. Overall a good dish though which I will be making again.

Use a small block of paneer instead of chicken for a meat free version. This also works really well with wholegrain rice served inside each roti alongside the rest of the ingredients.
