  • 500 g Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 kg Chopped Tomato (No need to peel)
  • 1 Medium Red Onion (Finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Minced Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Coriander (Finely chopped)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp White Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil (Extra Virgin)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 2 Green Chilli
  • Dash of Lemon Juice


  • Cut chicken breasts into chunks.
  • Roughly chop the tomatoes without removing the skin and mince garlic and ginger.
  • Heat oil in pan on medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until they start to turn golden.
  • Add ginger and garlic and cook for one minute while constantly stirring.
  • Add the chicken to the pan and sauté (until the chicken has turned white).
  • Add all the spices (red chili powder, garam masala, white cumin and turmeric) and cook for 30 seconds while constantly stirring.
  • Immediately add ½ cup water to the pan to prevent the spices from burning and follow it with the chopped tomatoes.
  • Leave to cook on medium to low heat for approximately 20 to 30 minutes or until the tomatoes have completely dissolved.
  • Add more water and cook for 5 minutes longer if the chicken isn't tender yet. All the spices will infuse into the chicken and by the time it's tender they'll be infused into the chicken – yum!
  • Taste and adjust spices. Add salt to taste.
  • Garnish with green chilis and coriander before serving as well as a dash of lemon juice.


You can use garlic and ginger paste instead of minced ginger and garlic. Add a little water and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer if tomatoes haven’t dissolved completely before taking off the stove.
