Total Time: +/- 




6 to 8 Chicken pieces

Salt & Pepper

Garlic powder

2 Tbsp Cumin seeds

1 Tbsp Fennel seeds

4 Cardamom pods

1 Red onion, peeled

30g Coriander leaves

4cm Piece of ginger

8 Cloves garlic, peeled

1 Tsp Turmeric powder

1 Punnet Romanita Tomatoes

2 Tbsp brown sugar

750ml Romanita Tomato Juice

1 Chicken stock cube, dissolved in water

1 Butternut, peeled and diced



In a large casserole pan, heat a little olive oil over med / high heat. Add the chicken pieces, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Fry a couple of minutes a side until golden brown and crispy. Remove from pot and set aside.

Place cumin seeds, fennel seeds and cardamom pods in a small non-stick pan. Toast until fragrant then remove from heat.

Place the toasted seeds together with the onion, coriander, ginger, garlic, fennel and chillies in a food processor and blitz, adding a little olive oil to create a paste.

Use the same pan used to brown the chicken and add the curry paste and turmeric powder. Fry for a couple of minutes before adding the Romanita Tomatoes and sugar. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes before adding the Romanita Tomato Juice and chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper, cover and cook for 1 hour.

After 1 hour add the chicken and diced butternut to the Romanita curry sauce. Do not cover. Simmer uncovered for 45 minutes until butternut is soft and sauce has thickened.

Serve with coconut rice and crusty bread to soak up all of that Romanita curry sauce. Enjoy!
