Today I wanted to share this authentic family recipe. This is great if you want an authentic (and healthier) curry without having to order a takeaway.  The level of spiciness can be amended to taste and this is also a great option if you like to meal-prep in advance as it still tastes amazing after having been kept in the fridge for a couple of days. 


  • 500g chicken breast (also works with thighs if you prefer)
  • Olive oil 
  • 1 large white onion 
  • Turmeric
  • Cumin seeds
  • Salt & pepper
  • Garam and/or chicken masala 
  • Cardamon pods (optional) 
  • Garlic and ginger paste (or fresh garlic and ginger)
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes 
  • Chillis or chilli flakes 
  • Fresh coriander
  • Rice   


  1. Heat up the olive oil and fry the copped onion until golden.
  2. Add the turmeric (3/4 tsps), cumin seeds(1/2 tsps), salt (3/4 tsps) and garlic and ginger paste (1 tsp).
  3. Mix for like 3 mins until you can smell the aromas from the spices (add some water if it starts to stick)
  4. Add the can of copped tomatoes.
  5. Wait for around 3 minutes and add the chopped chicken breast on a high heat. 
  6. Sprinkle on the garam masala (3/4 tsps) and continue to cook for around 15 minutes. 
  7. Add fresh chopped green chilies or flakes to taste and fresh chopped coriander.
  8. Cover on low heat for 10/15 mins and stir every 5 mins
  9. Then add some more coriander for garnish 
(If you want a thicker curry, turn up heat and mix for a couple of minutes until it reaches the desired consistency).
