Oil or ghee for frying
InstructionsGrind the spices and mix with marinade ingredients
Immerse chicken in marinade and leave in the fridge for 24 hours
Heat Oil in a frying pan (skillet!) or wok until very hot
Stir fry chicken vigorously for about 5 mins (you may need to do it in 2 batches, depending on the size of your pan)
Remove chicken and keep warm.

Fry onion and garlic until just browning and return chicken with any remaining marinade, plus stock, plus more spices if you think the sauce needs it; an extra tsp of cummin and coriander may lift it a little
Simmer until chicken is cooked and Sauce is nice and thick.
