SW recipes: Balti chicken with spinach and tomatoes

Ingredients:

4 skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into bite-size pieces

Juice of 1 lime

1 tbsp medium curry powder

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Low-calorie cooking spray

1 cinnamon stick

4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed

1 red chilli, left whole

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 large onion, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp garam masala

400ml passata

1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into small chunks

100g cherry tomatoes, left whole

80g baby spinach

A small handful of fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped

Lime wedges, to serve

Method:

1 Put the chicken in a bowl and add the lime juice, curry powder and a twist of pepper. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, or overnight if you can.

2 Spray a large wok or frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, chilli and cumin seeds, and stir-fry briefly just to colour and release their fragrance. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and fry for 3-4 minutes, until the onion starts to colour lightly. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until sealed.

3 Mix together the ground coriander, turmeric, cumin and garam masala; add to the pan. Stir, lower the heat to medium and cook for 1-2 minutes.

4 Pour in the passata and 150m1 water, then stir in the pepper. When starting to bubble, lower the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Add the cherry tomatoes and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add the spinach and coriander, turning once just to wilt. Season to taste and add a splash more water if required.

5 Remove the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods and chilli. Serve the curry with the rice, beans and raita, and lime wedges for squeezing over.
