Preparation / Directions:
We like to include at least one curry in a full meal and in the next chapter I'll show how to make up the different pastes that are the basis of the four main curries.

Add the chicken, stir and mix until the meat is coated with the curry mixture. Add the onion, potato and 4 Tbs. stock, and cook, stirring constantly until the potato is al dente.
