    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Heat butter in a 5- to 6-quart wide heavy pot over moderately low heat until foam subsides, then cook onions, garlic, and ginger, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add curry powder, salt, cumin, and cayenne and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook, stirring to coat, 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, including juice, and cilantro and bring to a simmer, then cover and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 40 minutes.
    2. 2
      Just before serving: pulse cashews in a food processor or electric coffee/spice grinder until very finely ground, then add to curry along with yogurt and simmer gently, uncovered, stirring, until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Note: Curry, without yogurt and cashews, can be made 5 days ahead and cooled completely, uncovered, then chilled, covered; reheat over low heat before stirring in yogurt and ground cashews.

      I made this again and want to review it again because it is one fabulous dish and worth 5 stars. This time I ground 1/2 cup of cashews and left 1/4 cup whole, to sprinkle on top. I added 1/2 cup chicken stock and only used 1 ts salt, to make it a bit saucier. Worked like charm.

      This was delicious! I'll definitely make this again sometime soon. I liked how I could just throw the chicken in there and let it boil instead of frying it in the pan. The only change I made was that I used 1 tsp of ground ginger instead of the fresh ginger and I left out the garlic. I served this with Jasmine rice that I made in my rice cooker. Next time I'll just slightly crush the cashews. They were ground too fine and I would have liked it better if there were bigger chunks. I made this meal for my roommate and I. She somehow manages to find something wrong with 98% of the recipes that I make but she didn't have a single complaint about this recipe! Thank you for sharing this recipe
