2. Put the above in a small sauce pan together with 4 tbsp oil, ¼ tsp turmeric, salt and cup of warm water (around 200-250ml) covered with lid.
3. Gently boil the vegetables until soft (approximately 15-20 minutes) stirring occasionally.
4. When cooked place in a blender to make into puree.
2nd Stage (Curry):
1. Heat 2 tbsp of oil (moderate heat) in a medium sized sauce pan with the Green Cardamom and Bay Leaves.
2. Add the rest of the garlic cloves (crushed) and gently fry until golden.
3. Add rest of the onions (finely sliced) with a little salt and cook to soften (stirring regularly).
4. Add Mr Huda's Universal Curry Paste, Chilli Powder and the Potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes (stirring regularly).
5. Add the ready blended stock and the Chicken with some warm water (around 125-150ml) and on full heat bring to boil and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes (covered and stirring occasionally) or until the desired texture is achieved (add more water if you prefer more sauce or cook on higher heat slightly longer with lid semi opened for thicker sauce).
6. Once cooking is nearly over add the chopped coriander and leave the curry to settle for 10-15 minutes before serving. Remove any excess oil before serving..
