  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion, garlic and ginger for 4-5 minutes, or until soft. Add the ground coriander, chilli powder and curry powder and cook for 1 minute, or until the aromas from the spices are released. Add the chicken and stir to coat in the spices.
  2. Add the coconut milk, diced potato and chopped tomatoes to the curry, bring to the boil and then simmer for 30 minutes, or until the potato is tender and the chicken is cooked through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. While the sauce simmers, cook the rice according to the packet instructions to be ready at the same time as the curry.
  4. To serve, divide the rice between plates and spoon over the cooked curry.
