1 tsp tomato puree

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

250ml Avonmore cooking cream

2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

Warmed Naan bread and mango chutney

To Serve:

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions and garlic until for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Stir in the ginger and green chilli, if using and cook for 1 minute, stirring.

Add the garam masala to the pan with the turmeric, chilli powder and a pinch of salt and cook for another minute, stirring. Add the tomatoes, tomato puree and bring to the boil stirring continuously.

To serve, arrange the basmati rice and chicken korma on warmed plates and scatter over the coriander. Place the naan breads in a separate dish to pass around at the table along with the mango chutney.
