Indian Chicken Curry

Indian Chicken Curry


1.5 lbs of boneless/skinless chicken thighs (I used chicken breast)
3 tbsp Canola oil
1 Yellow onion sliced
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp fresh ginger chopped (I used ground ginger like 1/2 tsp)
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2/3 cup chicken broth
2/3 cup plain yogurt
2 tsp Garam Marsala
2 tbsp cilantro chopped
1/2 cup roasted cashews chopped (I didn't use this)

1. Brown the chicken in oil
2. Using a slotted spoon transfer the chicken to a plate
3. Add onion to the drippings and saute for 4-5 minutes
4. Stir in garlic and ginger, saute until softened about 1 minute
5. Stir in tomato sauce and chicken broth
6. Return chicken to the sauce and bring to a simmer
7. Reduce heat to medium-low for about 20-25 minutes
8. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes
9. Stir in yogurt garam marsala and 2 tbsps of cilantro
10. Serve over a bed of rice and sprinkle with cilantro and cashews

Don't add the yogurt too soon or it will curdle!
