Share recipe




To begin, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add cassia bark, black peppercorns and cloves. Lightly fry, then add the sliced onions and fry until golden brown, for roughly 8–10 minutes on a medium heat, stirring occasionally
Add the chopped garlic and ginger and sauté for a minute or so. Add chicken pieces and cook over high heat for 5 minutes, until nicely golden and coated in the spices. Sprinkle over the flour and sauté well for a further 5 minutes
Add the green chillies, tomato paste and hot stock, season with salt and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the chunks of potato and simmer a further 15 minutes
Finally, add the vegetables and mint leaves and simmer a further 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve hot with either sourdough bread or steamed rice
