Add the dry spices and cook for a further minute.
Add the diced chicken and cook for 5 minutes stirring all together to coat the chicken.

Easy flatbreads (THANK GOODNESS)
125g self raising flour
3.5g baking powder
125g natural yoghurt
A few fresh coriander stalks and leaves finely chopped.
Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
Add coriander and yoghurt and mix together to form your dough.
Put onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes or if using a good processor use a dough hook for 2 minutes on low and then turn out on to a floured surface.
Divide into 4 and roll out into roughly 15 circles or just flatten by hand so they are not perfect circles and look more rustic.
Heat a frying pan with no oil and place one flatbread at a time into the pan and cook for 2 mins either side. Wrap them up in foil as you go to keep warm.
Serve your chicken, lentil curry in bowls topped with a sprinkling of fresh coriander.
