    1. 1
      Wash the chicken and pat dry.
    2. 2
      Combine the yogurt, tomatoes, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, peppercorns, cumin, chilies, saffron, turmeric, cayenne, ginger, garlic and salt.
    3. 3
      Pour mixture over the chicken, turning the pieces until they are well coated.
    4. 4
      While they marinate, in a large heavy skillet or stew pot, fry the onions gently in the butter and oil until light, golden brown. Let onions cool slightly and crush them with the back of a spoon.
    5. 5
      Add entire contents of the marinating bowl. Simmer until chicken is tender, adding small amounts of water as needed to keep the contents from sticking.
    6. 6
      Garnish with cilantro and mint and serve with rice or Indian bread.

      Delicious! It was a bit unexpectedly on the mild side, maybe because of the yoghurt, so first I thought it was quite bland except for the cayenne which I used, too. But after some bites the other flavours came through, too, and I really loved it. I had leftovers which we had the next day, and it proved to be even better after standing one day :) Thanks for sharing!
      Made for New African Tag Game.

      Wonderful curry. Made as written, using a combination of cayenne and paprika. Added a handful of quartered prunes near the end. Thoroughly enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.

      This curry was excellent. I made it as stated, except I used boneless chicken thighs. The spice was just right for us, not too hot, and great flavor, thanks! Made this for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.
