    Per Serving


  • 1tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2tsp Ground Turmeric
  • 1tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1tsp Paprika
  • 1tsp Garlic Powder
  • 150g Fat Free Yoghurt
  • 2 Chicken Breasts, chopped
  • 1tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 1 White Onion, chopped
  • 1tsp Garam Masala
  • 1tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 400g Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 250g Uncle Ben’s Pilau Rice
  • Small handful of Fresh Coriander, chopped
  • 1 Red Chilli, sliced


  1. Add the dried spices to a large bowl with the yoghurt, season and mix well. Place the chicken pieces into the bowl and coat well. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to marinade (the longer the better).
  2. When ready to cook, place a pan over a medium heat and add the oil. Cook the onion for 10 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the garam masala and tomato puree then cook for a few minutes until the spices begin to release their aromas. Tip in the tinned tomatoes, mix well together and leave to simmer over a low heat.
  3. Place a separate frying pan over a high heat and fry the chicken pieces until golden, keeping the excess yoghurt in the bowl. Transfer straight into the simmering sauce and leave to bubble for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Just before serving take the pan from the heat and stir in the remaining yoghurt with seasoning. Cook the Uncle Ben's rice according to instructions, top with the chicken curry and sprinkle with sliced chilli and coriander.
