  • In a large skillet, toast the cumin, coriander, and cardamom over low heat until you smell the spices, about 1 minute. Grind the spices finely in a spice grinder.
  • Add oil to the skillet, and heat over medium-high until the oil is very hot or smoking. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Let the chicken brown before stirring; and brown evenly on each side.
  • Add the curry powder, chili powder, cinnamon, tomatoes, onion, garlic, ginger, coconut milk along with the rest of the ground spices and white wine. Bring to a boil, and then simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens, about 1 hour.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and add the cilantro.

    This is a wonderful dish! I did make some changes however. When using cardamon pods, you break them open and roast the seeds. Also, I saute'd the onions and then added the roasted/ground spices and remaining dry spices then I added the chicken (You lose some of the flavors when you add the spices to cooked chicken). Oh, I did not add the white wine either. My Hubby is from South India and really like the flavors. It's one I'll def. make again! Thanks for sharing this!!

    OOPS! I goofed but this dish turned out wonderfully anyway. I added white wine VINEGAR instead of white wine. Actgually, the meal had a nice little bite and we all enjoyed the sweet and sour sauce. Next time, I won't brown the chicken at such high heat - it dried it out a little. But, this was wonderfully flavorful.

    Excellent, although the prep time given seems completely unrealistic to me. One great time-saver is using Sri Lanka (a.k.a. Ceylon) curry powder: the spices are already roasted and mixed, so you can just toss it in! If you can't find it in a store you can order it online--it's a delicious, dark alternative to regular curry powder.

    Made this for company...was a big hit! I didn't have the seeds either so we just used ground cardamon & coriander. It turned out very nice - we will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
