  • Stir in the saved marinade, tomato paste, coconut milk and 100ml water. Halve the tomatoes, and scoop out and discard the seeds. Chop, add to the pan and bring to the boil. Stir in the garam masala and the chicken. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

  • Serve with the coriander, rice and poppadums (optional).
