  Olive oil 45 Milliliter
  Onion 1 Medium
  Chicken fillet 400 Gram
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
  Green chilli 1
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Turmeric 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground coriander 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Tomato puree 1 Teaspoon
  Garam masala paste/1 teaspoon curry paste 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Double cream 30 Milliliter

Step 1: Prepare

Finely chop a medium sized onion

Remember- when preparing ingredients, the smaller you chop things, the faster they cook. Chop your ingredients really small, so they'll be ready in no time.

Crush 2 cloves of garlic with the side of a knife. Now peel away the skin, and finely chop.

Finely chop a green chilli. Unless you want an incredibly hot curry, use the knife to take out as many seeds as you can. Chilli juices can burn your skin so when you've finished, wash your hands.

Take the chicken on a fresh chopping board. Chop into small bite-size pieces. Wash your hands after chopping the meat.

Step 2: Fry the onion

Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Then add the chopped onion, and fry for 1 minute.

Step 3: Add chicken

Put the chicken in, and continue to fry for 5 to 6 minutes. The chicken will start to cook, and turn entirely white on the outside.

Step 4: Add garlic and chilli

Put the garlic and chilli into the pan, and stir. Carry on frying gently over a medium heat, until everything is golden brown, which will take 2 to 3 minutes. Keep stirring.

Step 5: Add spices

Put 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin and 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander in the pan. Stir well.

Step 6: Add more flavour

Add 1 teaspoon of tomato purée, and 1/4 teaspoon of garam masala or curry paste. Here we're using freshly made garam masala.

Stir, and fold 2 generous tablespoons of double cream into the mixture.

Step 7: Check the chicken

If you're worried about whether the chicken is cooked, take a large piece from the pan, and cut it in half. It should break easily, and be white all the way through, with no trace of pink. It should also be piping hot throughout.

Step 8: Serve

Serve hot with freshly cooked basmati rice, or naan bread.
