Method


Chicken Marinade:

Place the chicken thighs in a large bowl. Using clean kitchen shears cut them into two. Add the lemon juice, zest, garlic, ginger, chilli powder and a pinch of sea salt and mix well. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Mix the LANCEWOOD® Double Cream Plain Yoghurt with the garam masala, turmeric and cumin. Remove the chicken from the fridge and mix into the spiced yoghurt until completely covered. Return to the fridge and leave to marinate for at least 3 hours. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Set a large metal cooling rack on top of a large baking tray. Place the pieces of chicken onto the rack and bake for 20 minutes.

 

Curry sauce: 

Blend the crushed tomatoes into a fine puree using a stick blender. Place the butter in a large casserole dish on the stove. Once melted, add the garlic, ginger, crushed cardamom pods, cloves, coriander, garam masala, turmeric and chilli powder. Cook until fragrant. Add the pureed tomatoes. Simmer until the tomato begins to thicken and is well combined with all the spices. Pour in the lemon juice.

 

To finish:

Add the cooked chicken and gently stir in the sauce until well coated. Finish the curry with knobs of butter and the fresh cream. Serve with basmati rice and fresh coriander.
