  5. Place in a bowl, allow to cool & put in the fridge (will last for a couple of weeks in the fridge)
To Make The Curry
  1. Dice the chicken and place in a freezer bag/bowl. Add 4 tbsp of the paste, mix well and place in the fridge for an hour or so
  2. Spray a large pan with frylight & heat. Add in the cinnamon stick & chilli flakes and cook for 2 minutes

  6. After 15 minutes check the seasoning, if you need to add more salt – add it
  7. The chicken should now be booked through, but check it. Add the garam masala & ground coriander. Cook for a further 3 minutes & serve
