Indian Chicken in Tomato Yogurt Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by personalchef

This is my own creation based on several different Indian recipes that I have made. I like this served with Mutter Pulao, (Rice and Peas) a crisp green salad, and Naan. Check out Dumbell579's Mutter Pulao (Rice Pilaf With Peas) for the Mutter Pulao.

  1. Set chicken pieces aside.
  2. Combine ingredients from onion to cardamom to form a rub.
  3. Add chicken to rub mixture and mix very well so all chicken pieces are coated with spices and onion.
  4. Put the chicken mixture into a 10-inch covered sautee pan and sautee 10 to 15 minutes until onions begin to soften ad chicken takes on some color.
  5. Add the water, chopped tomatoes, and tomato paste and simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the yoghurt and simmer 1-2 minutes till warmed through.
  7. Serve in a bowl, with or without rice in the bottom. I prefer my rice served on the side.
