Instructions

Make the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat. Keep covered for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
  • Meanwhile, roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
  • Just before serving, stir half the chopped coriander through the rice.
Get Prepped
2
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve the chilli and discard the core and seeds. Finely chop.
  • Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
Start the Curry
3
  • Place a large pot over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry onion until softened, 4-5 mins.
  • Add chicken and season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until browned, stirring occasionally, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is due to packaging used to keep it fresh. It will still taste delicious once cooked!

Simmer the Sauce
4
  • Add the garlic, garam masala and North Indian spice mix to the chicken. Fry until fragrant, 1 min. 
  • Stir in the chilli (use less if you don't like spice), lentils, coconut milk, chopped tomatoes and ¼ tsp sugar (double for 4p). 
  • Simmer gently until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through, 12-14 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Stir every so often to prevent sticking.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Season the curry to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add a splash of water if you feel it's become too thick.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Spoon the rice into one side of your bowls. 
  • Serve the chicken curry alongside. 
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of the remaining coriander.
