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.
YIELD : 4 servings
TOTAL TIME: 30 mins

Coriander power-1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

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.
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.
Add the chicken to the pan and coat the pieces in the masala so it’s all nicely covered. Cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and combined with the thick sauce.
