Cook thick coconut milk in a saucepan, stirring constantly, until it becomes very oily.
Add half the onions and all the garlic and fry, stirring occasionally.
Add chicken and cook, stirring constantly for a few minutes. Set aside.
Mix chickpea flour with cold water to form a thin cream. Add thin coconut milk to the pan and when it comes to a boil stir in the chickpea flour mixture. Cook and stir constantly until it thickens a little.
Add the chicken and onion mixture, and simmer 3-5 minutes.
Stir in chilli oil and remove from the heat.
