This dish is a wonderfully aromatic and mild curry, and a great introduction to the delights of Indian cooking. It is one of those dishes that tastes even better if made the day before, stored in the fridge and reheated to serve.

Preparation time:  10-15 minutes
Cooking time: 30-35 minutes
Serves: 4 to 6

Attachments: Food Processor, Flexi Beater, Stirring Tool


  1. Skin the chicken then cut into bite-sized pieces. Slice the garlic and onions in the Food Processor using the thin slicing plate. Make a paste out of the spice mix (see Cook's note 1 on page 88).
  2. Attach the Flexi Beater, set the temperature to 140ºC and the speed to stirring 1. Add the ghee, garlic and onions to the bowl, cook until softened. Add the reserved paste and cook (see Cook's note 2 on page 88). Add the cream, sugar, ground almonds and creamed coconut. Reduce the temperature to 90ºC and simmer for 10 minutes.
