parsi chicken with apricots
I love the flavour of this spiced dish sweetened with dried apricots from Diane Seeds Favourite indian Food (Rosendale Press) though I increased the quantity of
apricots. The Parsis came originally from Persia where meat and fruit are often combined. The spicing smacks more of India where they settled after fleeing religious persecution over 1000 years ago.

1 cinnamon stick about 40mm long
