2

Add the meat, chutney, coconut cream, soy sauce, sugar, chilli, coriander & salt.

3

Bring to boil then simmer over a very low heat for 2 hours or until the meat is very soft. Keep the lid on, but with a wooden spoon in the pot to allow steam escape so the sauce reduces (it is quite a dry curry). Stir every 30 mins to prevent sticking.
