This is a wonderful chicken recipe I got from my mother. It is Indian-based, you can add more spices if you like.

This was delicious! I don't have much experience with cooking Indian food, but this was not difficult to prepare. I didn't have any buttermilk, so substituted yogurt and it worked well. -Chris
