    22 Ingredients

    2 tbsp sunflower oil

    6 chicken thigh fillets, cut into 3cm pieces

    1 onion, chopped

    3 garlic cloves, crushed

    4cm piece ginger, grated

    1 star anise

    1 cinnamon quill

    1/2 tsp fennel seeds

    2 tsp garam masala

    1/4 tsp chilli powder

    1 tbsp tomato paste

    2 cups (500ml) Massel chicken style liquid stock

    400g can butter beans, rinsed, drained

    4 large round bread rolls

    Olive oil, to brush

    1/3 cup (95g) thick Greek-style yoghurt

    Tomato & red onion sambal

    1 red onion, sliced

    1 long green chilli, seeds removed, chopped

    2 tomatoes, seeds removed, finely chopped

    1/2 bunch coriander, leaves chopped

    1 tbsp white wine vinegar

    1 tsp caster sugar


    Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat 1 tablespoon sunflower oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Season chicken, then in 2 batches, cook, turning, for 4-5 minutes until browned. Remove from the pan.

    Step 2

    Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, ginger and spices, then cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add tomato paste and cook for a further 1 minute. Return chicken to the pan and add the stock. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes.

    Step 3

    Add beans and cook for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly reduced. Remove from heat.

    Step 4

    Meanwhile, cut the tops off the rolls and hollow out, discarding filling and tops. Brush with olive oil and bake for 5 minutes or until slightly golden, then set aside.

    Step 5

    For the sambal, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

    Step 6

    Stir the yoghurt through the curry and season, then divide among bread rolls. Top with sambal, then serve.
