    Ok here is the recipe just in case it is the same

    salt and freshly ground pepper
    700g/1lb 8oz skinless and boneless chicken breast or thigh cut into bite size pieces
    low cal cooking spray
    1 onion peeled and grated
    4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
    1 red chillo chopped and deseeded
    1 tsp group ginger
    2 tbsp tomato puree (1 syn)
    1 tsp artificial sweetner
    5 tbsp fat free natural fromage frais
    300g/10.5 oz dried long-grain rice
    a handful of coriander, chopped

    1: Mix half of the tikka powder with the yoghurt and season well. Place the chicken in a bowl and pour over the tikka yogurt and combine. set aside
    2: spray a non-stick pan with low cal cooking spray and fry the onion for 5-6 mins. Add the garlic, chilli, ginger and remaining tikka powder and fry for 2-3 mins. Stir in the tom puree, sweetner and 250ml/8.5 oz of water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat add the fromage frais and simmer for 12-15 mins, stirring often.
    3: Cook the rice according to the packet, drain and keep warm.
    4: meanwhile preheat the grill to medium, place the chicken on a grill rack, spray with fry light and grill for 15 mins, turning occasionally until cooked, add the chicken to the sauce.
    5: serve sprinkled with coriander, with a tomato salad (sliced tomatoes, mint leaves, chilli power and lemon juice)

    Hopefully you get your book back - it's so annoying when you fancy something and you don't have your recipes :)

    do you think you could reduce the water content on this recipe and it wouldnt impact the cooking too much? I dont want a watery curry i want a thick creamy one!!! hehe!

    I might risk it and try this tonight with much less water. Or perhaps chicken bovril? - so its gloopy! oh pants, i really want to make it creamy and not watery!

    Could you not just boil it for longer and reduce it that way?
