  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp peeled and finely chopped fresh root ginger
  • ½ tsp turmeric

  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • 2 tbsp toasted flaked almonds

    Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin and cinnamon stick. Cook for 6 minutes, stirring every now and then, until the onion is softened. Add the chicken pieces, turn up the heat, and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
