Updated: Jul 1, 2020

Chicken bhuna is one of the most simple dishes to make, consisting of a supremely delicious and flavourful thick coating sauce which is not too heavy on the stomach.

Tastes best with fluffy basmati rice / butter naan.

  1. Heat oil in a large, pan (or wok) and add the chopped onions. Stir and leave to cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes.

  2. Once the onions have turned a golden brown colour, add Turmeric, Red chilli powder, Tandoori masala, Coriander powder and Garam masala. Stir and cook for about a minute.
