Remarks

It's even better if you can replace the chicken stock cube with some left over chicken cooking juices.

If you use raw chicken, no problem, just leave it to cook when you've added it to the pan, before adding the stock.

The ingredients can be adapted and varied to suit your taste, especially the spices.

And to drink?: It's not easy to find a wine that goes well with curry so why not try a beer, either pale or dark, otherwise a good tea.
