DIRECTIONS

  • Combine yogurt, ginger, and garlic; add chicken and marinate for one hour, up to a day.
  • Heat the ghee and oil in saucepan set over medium heat; add onions and saute until they begin to caramelize.
  • Stir in cinnamon, cardamom, and the bay leaf; add marinated chicken and season with salt.
  • Increase the heat to medium high; the heat will create a sauce from the marinade.
  • Cook, stirring often to prevent sticking and/or browning, for 10 minutes.
  • Slowly drizzle in the boiling water until the chicken is nearly submerged (the amount of liquid given off will vary according to your particular chicken).
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Stir in the lemon juice, ground almonds, sugar, raisins, and green chilies; cover and cook another 5 minutes to meld the flavors.
  • Garnish with slivered almonds, more raisins (if desired), and crispy shallots.
