What you need:

1/2 tsp whole mustard seeds
1/2 tsp whole cumin seeds
1/2 tsp whole coriander seeds
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lb (around 3 large) chicken thighs
1 onion, finely chopped (around 1 cup)
1 medium carrot, finely chopped (around 3/4 cup)
1 celery rib, finely chopped (around 1/2 cup)
1 tbsp curry powder
3 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped (around 1 tbsp)
1 inch piece fresh ginger, finely grated
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 apple, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 plum tomato, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1/2 cup dry red lentils
6 cups homemade chicken broth, or water
Greek yogurt, to garnish
Finely chopped coriander, to garnish
Red chili flakes, to garnish
What you do:
Place mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and coriander seeds in a frying pan or skillet and toast over high heat until spices begin to smell toasted, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a mortar and pestle or spice grinder and process until fine.
Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat until oil is shimmering. Season chicken thighs with salt and add to pot skin side down, cook until skin is golden, about 5 minutes then flip and cook until other side is also brown, about another 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and reserve.
Add onion, carrot, and celery to the pot and cook, stirring often until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add curry powder and toasted spiced and stir until the vegetables are evenly covered with the spices. Add garlic, ginger, sweet potato, apple and plum tomato and stir to coat. Add lentils then return chicken thighs to the pot. Cover with broth or water and bring to a simmer. Cook until potatoes and lentils are soft and soup has thickened, about 1 hour.
Remove thighs from the soup and shred the meat and skin then return to the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve garnished with yogurt, coriander, and red pepper flakes.

What you need:

vegetable oil
1 kg chicken pieces
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

What you do:

Pour the vegetable oil into a deep frying pan until it is 5cm deep. Alternatively you can use a deep fryer.
Mix together the  flour, salt and pepper.

Roll each piece of chicken in the flour.
Once coated place the pieces into the hot oil.
Cook for about 30-35 minutes turning once, as the oil should be deep enough to cover the pieces when it boils.

When cooked drain on kitchen paper for a minute or 2 to let the oil drain off a little.

Heat the Olive oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat, add the pieces of chicken and cook until lightly browned and almost cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the leek and garlic to the pan and cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute.

Return chicken to pan with cooked vegetables and tarragon, season well, then set aside to cool.

Cut four 18cm squares from the pastry, reserving off cuts.
