1
Put the garlic, ginger, tomato purée, garam masala, coriander, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, paprika and 150ml of the yogurt in a food processor and blend to a paste.

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium setting, add the onion, chilli and cardamom and fry for 3 mins until the spices release their aroma. Add the chicken mixture and the tomatoes, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 mins until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened. Reduce the heat and stir in the rest of the yogurt.

Top the masala with the chopped coriander. Serve with Quick Pickle on the side and ½ poppadom per person.
