Pasanda means "favourite" in Urdu, possibly because it's such a crowd-pleaser! To make this creamy curry, you'll add chicken to a rich, mildly spiced sauce, then serve with rice and coriander naan.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Tip: This is to warm your naans later (alternatively just pop them in the toaster)

Heat a large, dry wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the flaked almonds and cook for 2-3 min or until toasted and lightly golden then set aside for later

2 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Meanwhile, boil half a kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic and ginger

Return the pan to a medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the chopped onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 6-7 min or until softened

3 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Once the onions have softened, add the chopped ginger and garlic with the garam masala and turmeric and cook for 4-5 min further or until fragrant

Tip: Add a little more oil if the pan looks a little dry

4 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] in 150ml [250ml] boiled water

Chop the chicken breast[s] into large, bite-sized pieces

5 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Add the basmati rice and 250ml [500ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

6 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Once the spices are fragrant, add the chopped chicken and cook for 2 min or until coated in the spices

Add the chicken stock with the ground almondscoconut cream and a pinch of sugar and cook for 6-8 min further, stirring occasionally, or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

7 2273 - Creamy Chicken Pasanda, Coriander Naan & Rice

Once the chicken is almost done, add the mini coriander naans to a baking tray

Put the tray in the oven for 2-3 min or until the bread is hot

Tip: For a little extra indulgence, butter the hot naan once it's out of the oven

Once the chicken is cooked through, add the natural yoghurt and stir it all together – this is your creamy chicken pasanda
