1 cm ginger, peeled & minced (or 2 tsp pre-minced)
10-12 Cardamon Pods
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp curry powder
½ tsp chili powder
⅓ tsp salt
small can of tomato paste
400g can light coconut milk/cream
1Heat a frypan and add garlic, onions and ginger. Stir frequently for 30 seconds. Add Cardamon pods, garam masala, curry powder, chili powder, salt, tomato paste, coconut milk and stir to combine. Transfer sauce to the slow cooker and add then add chicken. Stir to cover chicken in sauce. Cover with a lid and cook on High for 3 hours or on Low for 5 hours.
3It is advisable to not add the full can of coconut milk/cream at the start. Towards the end I used some of the remaining coconut milk/cream and cornflour to thicken the sauce.
