Chicken Bhuna Curry

This is a very simple, family friendly chicken bhuna curry.  It has a lovely warmth and my kids love it.  Pair it with our delicious and cooling Mint and Coriander Raita.

Serves 6 

Prep Time 10 mins

Cook Time 30 mins

8 teaspoons Bhuna Spice Pot
2 tablespoons oil
2 onions, finely chopped
4cm piece of ginger, grated or finely chopped
4 fat garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
400g tin chopped tomatoes
800g chicken breasts, chopped into largish chunks
2 teaspoons salt
Spinach, a handful
For garnish, coriander and chopped fresh chilies


Heat the oil then cook the onions until softened and browning. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.  Add the tomatoes and simmer until the tomatoes are reduced to a thick paste.  Add the Bhuna spice and cook for a minute, stirring.

Add the chicken and salt and mix well to combine.  Add 150ml of water and with the lid on, let it simmer gently until the chicken is soft and tender, about 20 minutes.  Just before serving, swirl in some spinach and let it wilt.  Then garnish with fresh coriander and chopped chilies and Mint and Coriander Raita on the side.  

Serve with naan bread 

Freeze any leftovers for a busy week night.
