Add the cinnamon sticks, cook for a couple of minutes and add the onions, browning very slowly.
Stir in the masala and fry off until the oil begins to separate.
Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes turning half way through.
Season with salt and add the tomatoes and apricots (and any water remaining from the soaking).
Simmer with the lid on until the chicken is tender (if the sauce remains thin, uncover and allow to reduce for a few minutes until thickened).
Stir in the coriander and serve immediately with Indian breads or plain rice.
