- 1 piece ginger, chopped (half-inch)
- 1 hot green chili pepper (optional)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin seed
- 1 cup tomatoes, diced (canned or fresh)
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 tablespoons yogurt, plain (not low-fat)
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garam masala

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, chopped
- Mince the onions, garlic, ginger, and chili in a food processor.

- Add the sour cream and the yogurt and stir continuously for about 5 minutes, until the oil appears again.
- Add all the spices and salt and cook for one minute.
- Now add the chicken thighs, coating well with sauce. Cover and bring to a boil.
- Immediately reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.
- Uncover and mix in the lemon juice and fresh coriander leaves.
- Transfer to a serving dish and serve alongside plain rice.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am an active lady, and I am not the top chef in the world, but I can hold my own. I love making things that remind me of when I was little, I love trying out new recipes, and I love learning new things to cook. Most of the recipes I post are recipes I loved that I found online, but that I have tweaked just a bit. I do have some family recipes on here too. I love to bake, probably more than anything else in the kitchen. I love to bike ride. I like to read, travel, kayak (I've only been twice, but I loved it), hike, camp, basically any outdoorsy/active stuff.?
