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.


8 tsp Bhuna Spice Pot
2 tbsp 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 tsp salt
Handful spinach
Coriander and chopped fresh chillies to garnish

  1. Heat the oil then cook the onions until softened and browning.
  2. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.  
  3. Add the tomatoes and simmer until the tomatoes are reduced to a thick paste.
  4. Add the Bhuna spice and cook for a minute, stirring.
  5. Add the chicken and salt and mix well to combine.  Stir in 150ml of water
  6. Allow it to simmer gently until the chicken is soft and tender, about 20 minutes. 
  7. Just before serving, swirl in some spinach and let it wilt. 
  8. Garnish with fresh coriander and chopped chilies.
  9. Serve with naan bread and Mint and Coriander Raita on the side.
