Recipe

A mild curry popular in Indian restaurants, this is a fragrant and aromatic dish with a creamy sauce.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 20 Mins
Cooking time: 45 Mins

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil or ghee
  • 8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 in (2½ cm) pieces
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2/3 cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1¼ cups chicken stock
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Directions

1. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. In batches, add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until browned. Transfer to a plate.

2. Add the remaining 2 tbsp oil to the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring often, about 5 minutes, until golden. Add the coriander, cumin, turmeric, chili powder, cardamom, and ginger and reduce the heat to low. Cook, stirring often, about 2 minutes, or until the spices are fragrant.

3. Mix the yogurt and cornstarch together, then stir into the pan. Stir in the remaining stock. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Return the chicken to the pan and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is opaque.

4. Stir in the cream and lemon juice and simmer for 5 minutes more. Serve hot.

Notes

Freezing Information: Freeze for up to 1 month. Good with herb-flecked rice.
