    L'ecole's Note:

    Appeared in the Washington Post, 12/15/10. Both my husband and I loved the complexity of the flavors and textures. "Look closely at the ingredient list: It's very pantry- and leftover-friendly, especially if you usually keep fresh ginger on hand. We did not scale back the recipe to 4 servings, because this is the kind of saucy main dish that's good as lunch leftovers the next day, or it can morph into a baked casserole the day after that. The chicken adds texture and protein, but the masala could quite easily be prepared as a vegetarian dish. Serve with jasmine or other long-grain rice."

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oil and butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, finely chop the onions. Peel the ginger, then grate it to yield 2 tablespoons. Cut the garlic into very thin slices.
    3. 3
      When the butter has melted, add the onions, garlic, ginger, garam masala and cayenne pepper; cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the onions have softened.
    4. 4
      Shred the chicken (to taste), discarding any skin. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Coarsely chop the tomatoes, reserving their juices (discard any basil leaves in the can).
    5. 5
      Stir the chickpeas and the tomatoes with their juices into the pot. Once the chickpeas have heated through, use a potato masher to mash about half of them. Add the shredded chicken. Increase the heat to medium; once the liquid starts to bubble, cook for about 8 minutes, then stir in the coconut milk, sugar and salt. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring as needed.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, coarsely chop the cilantro. Cut the lemon into wedges.
    7. 7
      Taste, and adjust the seasoning as needed. Divide among individual plates; add spoonfuls of yogurt to each portion. Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve hot, with lemon wedges.
