Add the ginger, garlic and green chilli and stir fry for another minute
Add in the chopped chicken, and stir fry for about 5 minutes

Pour in the chicken stock, and then add the butternut squash and tomato puree, stir everything together thoroughly
Pour in the double cream, bring up to a gentle simmer, and cook for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally
some dry toasted flaked almonds on top of this are delicious! If you want to reduce the level of heat in this, then don't add the tsp of chilli powder to the spice mix.
