Heat the sunflower oil in a wide casserole dish over a medium-high heat. Fry the onion and garlic for 2 minutes before adding the chicken drumsticks. Stir well and cook for a further 2-3 minutes before adding all the spices including the bay leaf, mixing well.

Add the coconut milk and water and bring to the boil before lowering to a gentle simmer. Cover the dish and let the chicken cook gently for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked with no pink showing, but still tender.

5 minutes before the end of cooking time, add the diced tomato. Season well and serve in bowls garnished with the spring onion and saffron strands.
