Method

01:40
 
Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

Use an oven proof pot with a lid and gently fry the onions, garlic and ginger until soft. Add the curry powder, turmeric and chilli flakes and fry for another 2 minutes while stirring. (The mixture will become dry). Add the tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes.

Add the bay leaves, star anise, salt, sugar, chickpeas and coconut milk and give it all a good stir. Add the chicken pieces and gently mix with the sauce. Cook covered for 1 hour. Remove the lid and cook for another 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and stir in the baby spinach leaves. Replace the lid and let it stand for a few minutes for the spinach to wilt. Check the seasoning and serve with steamed rice and a dollop of yoghurt and freshly torn coriander.
