METHOD:

In a bowl, marinate the chicken in the green seasoning (recipe below).

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium-sized, heavy based saucepan. Add the onion and sauté until soft then add the spices (cumin, turmeric, garam masala) and fry for 2-3 minutes until aromatic. Add the chicken and green seasoning and stir until coated in the spice mix and simmer for 7-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through .Finally add the coconut milk, mustard (if using), salt and pepper.
