How to make it

  • Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Cook chicken until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
  • Heat remaining oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Sauté onion, garlic and ginger until soft and fragrant.
  • Stir in butter, lemon juice and spices. Cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  • Add tomato sauce, cooking for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in cream and yogurt. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add reserved chicken to sauce and bring sauce to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes until sauce has thickened and chicken is cooked through.
  • This recipe can be made lower fat without sacrificing flavour; simply use half the amounts of oil and butter. I also use light sour cream to replace the cream and yogourt.
  • You can adjust the level of heat by increasing or decreasing the quantity of cayenne pepper.
  • Although not "authentic", I like to add sliced red and/or green bell peppers to the onion mixture. Sauté until soft and fragrant.
  • Serve with naan bread and basmati rice.
