  1. Prepare by chopping the chicken breasts into small bite-sized pieces and finely chopping the large onion.

  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep-frying pan on a medium heat and add the finely chopped onion for 5-6 minutes until they become golden and soft. Add the chicken and stir regularly for 5 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and madras curry paste, stirring throughout. For a milder version only use 1-2tbsp of curry paste, for a hotter version use 4-5tbsp.
