  2. Heat canola spread in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until softened. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, for another 10 minutes or until it starts to brown. Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the tomato and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until tomato starts to soften. Stir in the yoghurt until combined. Stir in the cardamom mixture, turmeric, chilli and cinnamon with 2 tablespoons of hot water. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 1 hour or until cooked through.
  3. Top with fresh coriander to serve.

Notes

Creamy consistency: To keep the curry thick and creamy, and to stop the yoghurt curdling, stir the yoghurt through early and allow the curry to cook gently over low heat.
