Recipe : Butter Chicken

This has been behind the scenes for awhile because I had to remember it. Super easy and my kids all time favourite. I make a vegetarian version with paneer and peas that works great too.

Butter Chicken

Fry 1 onion chopped until just browning, then add 1 tbsn garlic paste, 1 tbsn ginger paste. Stirfry until fragrant, then add 1 tsn coriander, 1 tsp cumin, chili powder, & turmeric (? not too sure here).

Add 1 lb chopped chicken and cook through. Add two grated tomatoes, and cook until oil begins to separate from the tomatoes.

Add 1 cup cream (or yogurt for a lighter but not as rich version), then 1 tsn garam masala, salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped cilantro for serving.

I think. LOL
