Method

 
In a large saucepan/pot, brown the chicken and set aside.
In the same pot, melt the butter and fry the onions until soft and translucent.
Add the garlic and ginger and fry for another minute.
Add all the spices and allow to fry until fragrant.
Add the chicken back to the pot and also add the diced potatoes.
Stir to coat in all the spices.
Pour in the chicken stock. The stock should just cover the chicken pieces.
Add 150ml cream and turn the heat down.
Cover and allow to simmer gently for 20-25 minutes.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
