Method

  1. Put chicken thighs in a pot with the stock, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Drain off the stock, reserve and leave the chicken to cool.
  2. In the meantime, gently cook the onion, garlic, cumin, ginger, turmeric, chilli, cardamom and fenugreek seeds in the vegetable oil for 3-4 minutes with a lid on without colouring the onions. Add the stock from the chicken and boil until it reduces to a couple of tablespoons.
  3. Coarsely blend in a liquidiser; cool.
  4. Mix with the mayonnaise, yoghurt, coriander and chutney and season. Cut the chicken into chunks or slices and mix with the sauce. Butter your bread and assemble your sandwiches, with or without the lettuce, with a generous amount of filling.
