  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder

  • 2 cups (500ml) Massel chicken style liquid stock
  • 400g can butter beans, rinsed, drained

  • 1/2 bunch coriander, leaves chopped
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar

 

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat 1 tablespoon sunflower oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Season chicken, then in 2 batches, cook, turning, for 4-5 minutes until browned. Remove from the pan.
  2. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, ginger and spices, then cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add tomato paste and cook for a further 1 minute. Return chicken to pan and add stock. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Add beans and cook for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly reduced. Remove from heat.
  4. Meanwhile, cut the tops off the rolls and hollow out, discarding filling and tops. Brush with olive oil and bake for 5 minutes or until slightly golden, then set aside.
  5. For the sambal, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  6. Stir the yoghurt through the curry and season, then divide among bread rolls. Top with sambal, then serve.
