Here is one of Sarah's favourite recipes to try for National Curry Week......


Serves 4
10 kashmir red chillies or 2 tbsp chilli seeds
Half inch fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
3 tomatoes
2 bay leaves
Half tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 inch cassia bark or cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
8 cloves garlic or 2 tbsp garlic paste
2 tbsp sunflower oil
1kg of chicken, cut into small curry pieces
Soak chillies in water for a few minutes then add with all other ingredients (except for chicken, oil and cinnamon and bay leaves) into a blender and blend into a paste.Put the oil in a pan, add the bay leaves and cinnamon then gently fry for a minute. Next add the paste from the blender and stir for 3-5 minutes.Add the chicken and stir for 3 minutes. Add a cup water and stir.Cover and leave to cook on a low heat until the chicken is cooked through.
