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.
