Add chicken thighs, yoghurt, ginger, turmeric, chilli powder and salt to a bowl and mix well until chicken is completely coated and set aside. Leave to marinade at least 15 mins.
Heat coconut oil in a large deep pan or casserole dish on a medium heat and add chicken thighs. Cook for 5-6 mins before flipping and cooking a further 5-10 mins until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken thighs and set aside.
Add onion to pan with a small splash of water to help onion to soak up that flavour from the pan and fry for 5 mins. Add garlic, ginger, turmeric chilli powder and another splash of water. Stir constantly until onion is coated in spices and leave to fry for 1 min.
Stir basmati rice into onion and spices, then add coconut milk and 1/2 a mug of hot, recently boiled, water. Give it all a good stir, bring to a simmer, place chicken thighs back on top of rice, cover with a lid and leave to cook for 15-20 mins, until rice is cooked.
Garnish with some chopped cashews and coriander before serving and enjoy!
