Be sure to use plain whole-milk yogurt for this recipe. Fat-free yogurt is not as substantial and will curdle and/or cause the sauce to separate once it is mixed with the hot liquid, resulting in an unpleasant flavor and texture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tbs. canola oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • 3 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • Steamed basmati rice for serving (optional)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted cashews

Directions:

Brown the chicken
Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper. In a large, deep fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the chicken and cook, turning once or twice, until golden brown on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes total. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate.

Cook the vegetables
Add the onion to the drippings in the pan and sauté until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and ginger and sauté until softened, about 1 minute. Stir in the tomato sauce and broth.

Finish the dish
Return the chicken and any juices from the plate to the pan, spooning the liquid over the chicken. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring once or twice, until the chicken is opaque throughout, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt, garam masala and 2 Tbs. of the cilantro.

Divide the rice among shallow bowls and top with the chicken mixture. Sprinkle with the cashews and the remaining 1 Tbs. cilantro and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Indian Food I have used fat-free yogurt and had no complaints about the taste or texture. A better replacement is coconut milk - gives a much richer flavour, and has a similar fat content to the milk. I use more garam masala, as a personal preference. Relatively authentic taste, while being very easy & beginner friendly. This recipe has been in my recipe box for years.
