1 clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
2.5cm (1 inch) cube of fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
1 tablespoon (15ml) curry paste
1/4 teaspoon (1ml) chilli powder
1 teaspoon (5ml) coriander powder

Method

Heat the oil over a medium to high heat in a large frying pan (you need one with a lid)
Fry the cumin seeds for about 1-2 minutes until they start to splutter
Add the onion, green and red bell peppers, garlic and ginger and saute for 5-9 minutes until the onion is cooked, turning often
Reduce the heat a little to medium
Add the curry paste, mix well and stir-fry for 2 minutes (the mixture becomes very dry so keep stirring to stop the curry from sticking and burning)
Add the chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt and a tablespoon (15ml) of water, mix well and stir-fry for 2 minutes (the mixture is still very dry so keep stirring often)
Add the chicken, mix well and saute for 5 minutes
Add the chopped tomatoes and chopped coriander leaves, mix well, reduce the heat to a good simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes
Serve hot on a bed of rice
