1 Medium Onion, finely sliced chopped

3-4 garlic cloves

Thumb size ginger peeled and diced

2 red chillies 

½ Tin chopped tomatoes

For the Cashew Milk:

1/2 cup cashews (raw)

method:

  1. To make the cashew milk, cover raw cashews with water and allow to soak for at least one hour (more is better if you can wait a bit longer.
  2. Drain and rinse and place the soaked cashews, 2 split cardamon pods and 1 cup of water into a blender and mix until smooth and creamy

  5. Add, turmeric, garam masala and salt to the onion mixture. Cook spices for a few seconds.
  6. Add chopped tomatoes. Reduce heat to low. Let the sauce cook gently but don’t allow it to become dry.
  7. Add Cashew milk and cook for 5 mins, then add the chicken pieces, making sure to cover all pieces with the sauce.
  8. Cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.  Add lemon juice and sprinkle chopped coriander leaves on top.
  9. Turn off the heat, cover, and leave for a few minutes before serving with rice, pita bread or chapati.  Finish with some fresh coriander leaves and enjoy!
