  • Preheat oven too 200°C.
  • Place chicken in bowl with, cumin, garam masala & tumeric and toss to coat.
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in dutch oven (or casserole) add the chicken in batches and cook 3-4 minutes or until browned all over, adding a little more oil if necessary.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil, onion, ginger and garlic to the casserole and cook over medium heat until the onions are soft and golden.
  • Add the rice and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Return the chicken in a single layer and pour over the stock.
  • Put the lid on and place in oven.
  • Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the stock.
  • Top with coriander before serving. I like to serve mine with cumin and mint yogurt.
