READY IN: 25mins




  • Cut the onions into quarters, place in a food processor or blender and process for about 1 minute.
  • Add the tomato puree, cashew nuts, garam masala, garlic, chili powder, lemon juice, turmeric, salt and yogurt to the processed onions.
  • Process all the spice ingredients in the food processor for a further 1-1 1/5 minutes.
  • In a heavy-based saucepan, heat the oil, lower the heat to medium and pour in the spice mixture from the food processor. Fry for 2 minutes lowering the heat if necessary.
  • When the spice mixture is lightly cooked, add half the chopped fresh coriander, the sultanas and the chicken cubes and continue to stir fry for a further 1 minute.
  • Add the mushrooms, pour in the water and bring to a simmer. Cover the saucepan and cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes.
  • After this time, check that the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thick. Cook for a little longer if necessary and serve garnished with the remaining fresh coriander.
