Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have coconut milk, or prefer not to use it, that is fine. The chicken will be really flavourful without it.
  • This dish freezes really well. Make a double or triple batch and freeze for quick future meals.


  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin Seeds
  • 5 or 6 Cardamom Pods, seeds removed (or 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cardamom)
