Serves 4

1 to 2 tablespoons oil

5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or crushed
2 tablespoons tomato paste

200ml coconut milk
200ml chicken stock
Salt, 1.5 tsps 
Fresh coriander and green chillies to garnish

Heat the oil and cook the onions until soft and browning (about 10 minutes), then add the ginger and garlic and cook for another minute.

Add the tomato paste and spices. Cook for a minute then add the chopped chicken. Mix and cook. When the chicken has taken on a wee bit of colour, add the coconut milk, stock and salt. Gently cook for about 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. 

Serve with chopped fresh green chilli, coriander and a dollop of thick natural yoghurt.
