This curry was delicious!

The infusion of all the spices is just wonderful, so why not give Jeena's chicken curry a go and enjoy this dish of spicy love.

3 tsp Turmeric
2 tsp Ground Coriander
2 tsp Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
3 tsp Garam Masala
approx Inch Cube Fresh Ginger(chopped small)
2 Large Garlic Cloves(chopped small)
Methi/Fenugreek(large pinch)
Dried Coriander(large pinch)
3 Dried Curry Leaves(crushed)
Coriander Seeds(pinch)
Cumin Seeds(pinch)
Mustard Seeds(pinch)

For the Main
1 Red Capsicum/Pepper(chopped)
1 Green Capsicum/Pepper(chopped)
3 Small Onions(chopped)
2 Small Onions(finely chopped)

2 Large Handfuls Mushrooms
3-4 Chicken Breasts(chopped)
Ghee (or olive oil if you want to be extra healthy)

1/2 cup Creamed Tomato's(if you like the tomato taste to curry add a little more)

To Get Started

First of all chop all your vegetables up. Then grind your ginger and garlic into a paste in a mortar and pestle and put to the side. This makes cooking your curry a lot easier.

On With the Main

Fry your finely chopped onions in some ghee until they start to brown.

Now add your chicken pieces and seeds, cook for a minute.

Turn down the heat a little and add your garlic/ginger paste, stir well for a minute or two.

Add your other chopped onions, peppers and creamed tomato's with a small splash of water and some ghee.

Cook for a few minutes.

(don't add too much water as this will make it more into a stew)

Turn down the heat and add all your spices and herbs with some ghee. Stir and cook on a low heat.(careful not to have your heat too high or it will take the flavour away from your spices).

Put your garam masala in last.

Chicken doesn't take very long to cook, always make sure it is cooked all the way through. When the chicken is ready - so is your delicious curry!

Serve with your favourite bread and enjoy!
