Stage 1 (Puree)
• Cut 1 onion into ¼'s, cut the tomatoes into ½'s, chop the green pepper, ginger (peeled), garlic clove, and a little coriander.
• Put the above in a small sauce pan together with 4 tbsp oil, ¼ tsp turmeric, salt and cup of warm water (around 200/250 ml) covered with lid.
• Gently boil the vegetables until soft (approximately 15/20 minutes) stirring occasionally.
• When cooked place in a blender to make into puree.
• Heat 7 tbsp of oil in a medium sized sauce pan.
• Add cardamom and the bay leaves and slowly fry.
• Add rest of the onions (finely sliced) with salt and cook to soften (stirring continuously).
• Add the Mr Huda's Universal Curry Paste and cook for 2-3 mins (stirring continuously).
• Add the ready blended puree and cook for further 3-4 mins (stirring occasionally, covered).
• Add the chicken with a little warm water (around 100-125 ml) and on full heat bring to boil and then cook for around 3-4 mins (covered and stirring occasionally).
• Back to moderate / low heat, leave to simmer (covered) for 30 mins (stirring occasionally).
• Add the coconut, sugar and the cream and bring to boil then leave to simmer for further 10-15 mins (stirring occasionally) or until the required moisture (add more water if you prefer more sauce or cook on higher heat slightly longer with lid semi opened for thicker sauce).
• Once cooking is over add the butter or ghee, stir and leave the curry to settle for 10-15 mins before serving and garnish with a little cream on top.
