Quick and Easy Indian Supper: No Butter Chicken

I'm back today with a new recipe. 

Some of you may have noticed that my recipes can now be found under the "Food" tab instead of the former header of "Saturday Kitchen".  Just figured Food might be a bit easier to understand than Saturday Kitchen for any of my new comers. 
Not to worry though, all the same great material can be found on the page as before.

Anyhoo, back to the subject at hand...




Add to your pan

2 Tbs oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 Tbs fresh garlic, chopped
1 Tbs fresh ginger, chopped

Cook over medium heat for about 4 minutes or until the onion is golden brown



Add the following spices to the onion mixture:

2 Tbs tomato paste
1 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs cumin seeds
1 Tbs garam masala
1 tsp red chili flakes
1 tsp tumeric ( I left this out simply because I didn't have any!)
1 tsp salt

Cook 3 minutes.


Add:

1//2 c water
1/4 c low fat yogurt

Simmer to allow the flavors to come together


At this point, the original recipe suggests adding diced boneless, skinless chicken breast to the pan and cooking 8 minutes or until done. 

I opted to roast bone in, skin on chicken breast in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. The chicken is moister and more flavorful this way, but you could certainly go either way.

Once the chicken is cool to the touch, remove from the bone and dice.

Add to the sauce and simmer to allow the flavors to come together and you are done!!!


Serve with white rice and a green salad.

This is a lovely Indian influenced dish with a subtle heat - I'd definitely recommend it as it's going on our "to make again list"!

Special thanks to my friend, Nancy, for forwarding the recipe.
