  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ingredients for the marinade, adding the chicken. Fold the marinade with the meat until it is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  3. Add the turmeric, cumin and salt, followed by the fenugreek, if using, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Tip in the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes or until the onion mixture becomes quite thick.
  4. Stir in the butter, then the chicken and marinade, and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  5. Serve the curry hot with naan bread and an onion and green leaf salad.
