Flora Cuisine Chicken Tikka Masala (h)

Place the chicken in a large bowl and mix with the ginger, garlic, chilli, black pepper, coriander and lime. Set aside to allow flavours to develop.

Heat half the Flora Cuisine in a heavy based frying pan and fry the chicken for 8-10 mins until browned on all sides.

Meanwhile heat remaining Flora Cuisine in a pan and cook the onion and red chilli for 5 mins until golden brown. Add the turmeric and cook for 1 minute.

Stir in the stock pot, Elmlea and/or yogurt and heat through gently. Add the chicken to the sauce and simmer for 5 mins or until the chicken is cooked through with no pink showing. 

Garnish with coriander and serve immediately with rice and vegetables.
