salt and freshly ground black pepper
50g tikka paste

50g tomato paste

125ml yoghurt
1 bunch fresh coriander leaves, chopped
jasmine rice to serve

  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and fry the garlic and chilli for a minute or 2.
  • Add the chicken strips and fry for a few minutes until golden brown.
  • Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and add the tikka paste and fry a little.
  • Add the coconut milk and yoghurt and bring the mixture to the boil.
