Toast the almonds in a hot oven for 5 to 6 minutes, careful not to color them too much.
In a large pot, sweat the finely chopped onions for 5 minutes. Add the chicken thighs and brown them. Add the turmeric, the ginger, the cinnamon stick, the safron and salt and pepper to taste.
Cover the meat with 2 cups of water and add the whole coriander bouquet.
Peel the pears and cut them in four lenghtwise. Put them in water to avoid oxidation.
