We always prefer to use boneless free-range chicken thigh fillets for curries - they stand up to strong flavours and reheat well, unlike breast which becomes dry and tough.
We marinate them first in ginger and garlic-infused yoghurt and then cooked in a tomato-based, gently spiced sauce (lots of sweet spices like cardamon and cinnamon, as well as cumin, chilli and garam masala) before being finished with a little cream, ground almonds and whole roasted cashew nuts. It's a big family favourite.
