When it comes to homemade curry, I think it’s all about the spice mixture creating that perfect base. It’s a perfect way of putting the spices in your kitchen to work! Click here for more recipes from Schwartz.

Place all the ingredients for the spice paste in a food processor and blitz until completely smooth. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken with the garam masala and a generous seasoning of salt.
Heat a large high sided pan over a medium high heat and add the oil. Once hot, fry the chicken until golden brown on all sides. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside on a plate.
If required add another drop of oil and over a medium high heat, fry the paste for 6 minutes until aromatic, stirring regularly.
Add the chicken back to the pan, with the tomatoes and chicken stock. Bring to a steady simmer and then turn the heat to low and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes until the sauce has reduced and the chicken has cooked all the way through.
To serve, stir through a squeeze of lemon juice to taste and serve with cooked rice, naan bread and garnish with coriander leaves.
