Put the apricots into a pan with pt water. Boil, reduce the heat and simmer until tender but not mushy. Turn off the heat and leave in juice.

When the chicken has marinated, heat 6 tbsp. oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onions and stir and fry until they are rich reddish brown. Turn heat to medium and add remaining garlic, ginger and dry spice mix. Stir, add chicken. Stir & brown for 5 mins.

Put the apricots and 3 tbsp. of juice into the pan with the chicken and leave for at least 30 minutes.

Make potato straws. Fill a large bowl with 3 pts water. Add salt and mix. Grate potato coarsely, put into the bowl of water and stir. Remove the potato, squeezing out as much liquid as possible. Drain and dry on kitchen paper.
