  3. 3. Add the sliced onion and potatoes and cover an cook for a further 10 minutes then reduce the heat and cook uncovered until the sauce thickens and the chicken and potatoes are cooked.

  4. 4. Check the seasoning and add more salt if needed.

  5. 5. Scatter fresh chopped coriander over the top and serve with rice, roti or toasted pitta bread and natural yoghurt sprinkled with chopped red onion and mint.
