Finely chop cilantro
Heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil in a medium skillet for the poppadoms
Place two pieces of paper towel on a plate
Step 1: Prepare rice
Pour rice into a medium saucepan. Add measured water with a pinch of salt. Cover and bring to boil, reduce to low heat and simmer for 15-18 mins or until all water is absorbed. Remove the lid, fluff with a fork, cover & set aside.
Step 2: Prepare curry base
In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion/garlic/ginger mixture and half of the garam masala. Fry on a medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the spices together with the tomato purée, cook for a further 2 mins until fragrant.
Step 3: Cook chicken
Add the stock and marinated chicken and any marinade left in the bag. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Step 4: Fry the poppadoms
While the chicken is cooking, increase heat of the warm oil to medium high. One by one, carefully place the poppadum and fry for 30 seconds, until nice and crispy and brown. Set on plate with paper towel to drain and cook other poppadum. Add more oil if necessary.
Step 5: To serve
Divide rice and curry and serve with poppadoms, mango chutney and sprinkle the dish with chopped cilantro.
