1 Marinate chicken

Chop the chicken. Peel and grate the garlic and ginger. Combine the chicken, garlic, ginger, 2/3/4 Tbsp of lemon juice, cumin, coriander, garam masala, turmeric and chilli powder (spicy!) in a bowl. Add 100-170 g of natural yogurt and mix well. Marinate for at least 15 min, preferably for a few hours or overnight in the fridge.

2 Boil rice

Add the basmati rice, the measured water and a pinch of salt to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 min or until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Remove the pot from the heat and keep covered until serving.

3 Cook chicken

Heat a pan over a medium-high heat with the ghee. Once hot, remove the chicken chunks from the marinade (don't shake off the excess) and add them to the pan. Fry the chicken for 3 min (the chicken doesn't have to be cooked through at this point).

4 Simmer

Add the tomato passata, cooking cream and brown sugar. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer (don't boil!) for 10-15 min. Add a splash of water if the sauce looks too thick. Season with salt to taste.
