Step by Step method


1. Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the chicken and fry quickly all over. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

2. Add a little more oil to the pan, if necessary, and fry the cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon for 1 minute. Add the onion and fry over a low heat for about 5 minutes until softened. 

3. Place the garlic, ginger, chilies, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender and process to a smooth paste. Add to the pan together with the turmeric, and cook for 5 minutes.

4. Melt the coconut in the hot water and add to the pan. Season to taste with salt. Simmer for 2 minutes, and then add the chicken pieces and any juices. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until tender.

5. Transfer to a warm serving dish, garnish with red pepper strips and serve immediately.
