    breezermom's Note:

    This is a good recipe to make for someone just trying Indian food. This version came from Sunset March 2001. Feel free to add more jalapeno if you like it hotter, or add some cayenne pepper after tasting.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine onion, ginger, chili, and oil. Stir often over high heat until onion is lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in garam masala.
    2. 2
      Scrape mixture into a blender; add tomato paste and chicken broth. Whirl until very smooth.
    3. 3
      Pour mixture back into pan, add cream, and bring to a gentle boil over high heat (mixture is inclined to spatter). Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until reduced to 3 cups, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce into a bowl. Rinse and dry pan.
    4. 4
      Mix chicken with pepper and sprinkle lightly with salt. Set pan over high heat; add 1 tablespoon butter and the chicken. Stir until chicken is no longer pink on the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sauce and simmer over medium heat, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink in the center (cut to test), 3 to 4 minutes. Cut remaining 3 tablespoons butter into chunks and stir into sauce until melted.
    5. 5
      Spoon chicken and sauce onto rice. Add salt to taste. Squeeze lime juice over portions. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro if desired.

      Fantastic!! I followed the recipe to a T. It is so flavorful, you barely need any salt. A keeper. Thank you breezermom.

      We love a curry in our house..and this one was no exception.<br/>Worth every minute spent in preparation...this made for a family friendly, delicious dinner ( the 6 and 8 year old gobbled it up!).<br/>DH says the leftovers the next day tasted even better.<br/>A keeper for sure.<br/>Made for PRMR.

      Delicious! This was easy to make and full of flavor. I increased the amount of the garam masala because I love it. I used chicken thighs, took the skin off, but left the bone in (more flavor I think) but I can see this being used with boneless breasts, or even leftover cooked chicken. Made for ZWT 8
