1 kg Chicken, skinned and cut into cubes
1 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder, ground coriander seeds
1/2 tsp black mustard seeds
6 dried red chillies, or birds eye chillies
1 tsp turmeric
2 Bay leaves
4 Green Cardamoms
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 large onion, chopped
1 2 inch piece cinnamon stick
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 1/2 tsp salt
110 g red lentils
6 tbsp water, for the chicken
5 tbsp oil
2 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, chopped
2 1/2 cups (620ml) warm water, for the lentils
1 tsp salt, for the lentils
2 Large Saucepans
2 Stirring Spoons

4. Then add the lentils, which have been washed and drained

5. Add the water and salt, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and cook for 15 minutes. Mash the lentils with a spoon to make a pulpy mixture. And cook for another 15 minutes

6. Add lentils to the pan containing the chicken pieces. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and cook for 30 minutes, whilst stirring occasionally to make sure that it does not stick or burn.
