  1. Heat the ghee in a large pan or wok and brown the chicken pieces a few at a time and reserve. Take care as ghee tends to smoke and burn easily
  2. Add the onion and garlic and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until soft and translucent
  3. Add the chopped mangoes, nutmeg, black pepper, sea salt, turmeric and lemon zest
  4. Stir-fry for a few more minutes and add the chicken stock
  5. Cover the pan and simmer gently for 45 minutes so the chicken is tender
  6. Remove the chicken and keep warm in a casserole dish in a slow oven. [150°C, 300°F,Gas Mk 2]
  7. Reduce the sauce to about half and then add the lemon juice and cream. Cook for a further 5 minutes being careful not to let the sauce boil and curdle
  8. Put the sauce in a blender or force through a sieve
  9. Add the sauce to the casserole and leave in the oven for another 15 minutes
