Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 20 Mins
Cooking time: 25 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1in (2.5cm) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • ½ green bell pepper, seeded and sliced

Directions

 

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garam masala, cumin, mustard seeds, and turmeric, and stir for 1 minute, until fragrant.

2. Add the onion, ginger, and garlic, and cook, stirring often, for about 2 minutes, until the onion starts to soften. Add the red and green peppers and the chiles and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.

3. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the chicken, and cook until it begins to brown. Add the tomatoes and cilantro, lower the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, stirring frequently. Serve hot.
