2 tablespoons ginger

1 tablespoon garlic, chopped

4 tablespoons curry powder

2 cups of diced tomatoes

In sauce pot over medium heat put some oil and brown chicken pieces in batches. Do not crowd pot. Transfer chicken to bowl until all is browned. Pour off oil from pot. Now add a little fresh oil and start sauteeing onions. Just as they start to get color, add scallions, ginger, garlic, and curry powder. Stir and continue to saute for a few more minutes. Then, add tomatoes and chicken pieces back to pot. Now, add water or stock. Bring this all to a simmer and cover. In about 35 to 50 minutes, depending on size of chicken pieces, curry will be ready.
