See here, Carl, but see also the final post as I forgot to list the oil in the original message.  My quantities are doubled twice in terms of Kris's book : double the quantity of sauce per unit weight of chicken, and double the quantities of spices per unit volume of sauce.

Thanks Phil,

What's the method used to cook?

Bring oil and gravy to a gentle boil (Kris suggests a rolling boil, but it will splash everywhere !), add ground chillies, salt and pre-cooked chicken (she pre-cooks in a little of the green sauce with oil, turmeric & paprika for about 10--15 mins), and keep at a gentle boil (see above) for about five minutes.  Reduce the heat, add the cumin & fenugreek, and cook for a further three minutes or so.  At this point I (but not Kris) add some chopped coriander stalks and cook for a further couple of minutes before removing the surplus oil (leaving a little to create the gloss), garnishing with coarsely chopped coriander leaves and serve.  Seems to go well with stuffed paratha, chapatti or pilau rice.
