Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan over high heat. Cook the chicken pieces for 8 minutes, or until golden on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add the ginger and garlic to pan and stir for 1–2 minutes. Add the onion and cook for 6–7 minutes, or until golden. Reduce the heat to low, then add the yoghurt, turmeric and salt. Stir well, bring to a gentle boil, then return chicken to the pan. Cover and simmer for 6–8 minutes. Drain the chana dal and dried plums, add to the pan and simmer for another 2–3 minutes. Add the tomato and chilli and cook for 10 minutes, or until dahl is soft, sauce is thickened and oil has risen to the surface.
Serve with red onion rings, lime wedges, coriander sprigs and Afghan bread.
