DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the chicken and pat dry.
  • Combine the yogurt, tomatoes, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, peppercorns, cumin, chilies, saffron, turmeric, cayenne, ginger, garlic and salt.
  • Pour mixture over the chicken, turning the pieces until they are well coated.
  • While they marinate, in a large heavy skillet or stew pot, fry the onions gently in the butter and oil until light, golden brown. Let onions cool slightly and crush them with the back of a spoon.
  • Add entire contents of the marinating bowl. Simmer until chicken is tender, adding small amounts of water as needed to keep the contents from sticking.
  • Garnish with cilantro and mint and serve with rice or Indian bread.
