Prep: Bring 11/2 cups salted water (double for 4 people) to a boil in a medium pot. Wash and dry all produce. Mince or grate the garlic. Peel the ginger and mince 1 tbsp (double for 4 people.) Roughly chop the cilantro. Cut the chicken into 3/4-inch pieces.


Cook the rice: Add rice to the boiling water. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed, 10-12 min.


Cook the chicken: Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the onion, garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion starts to soften, 2-3 min. Add as much spice blend as you dare (careful - it's spicy!) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 sec. Add the chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is golden-brown all over, 4-5 min.


Add the diced tomatoes, peas and sugar. Cook, stirring, until warmed through, 1-2 min. Remove the pan from the heat and let stand for 2 min. Stir in the yogurt. (TIP: If you stir in the yogurt when it's too hot, your curry may split!)


Finish and serve: Serve the curry over a bed of rice and sprinkle over the cilantro. Enjoy!
