Packed with flavour, our bombay chicken curry can be made vegan by using vegetables and plant-based yogurt!
Cut the chicken in to smaller pieces, place in a bowl, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper, two chopped chillies, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and two tablespoons of flour, toss until coated and leave to marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan, fry the chicken on each side for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan, fry the onions until golden brown then add the tomatoes until soft. Tip the onion and tomato in to a blender a long with the yogurt and blend until smooth.
Fry the star anise, ginger, garlic, curry leaves, bay leaves, cumin seeds, cloves, 2 peppercorns and three chillies. Add the yogurt mixture to the pan, cook until it begins to thicken. Tip in the chilli flakes, cumin, coriander, paprika, tomato puree, salt to taste and mix.
Pour in the cream to form a smoother mixture, tip in the chicken, cook and stir in the spinach. Try to remove any whole spices before eating.
