This is a really nice Indian recipe, taught to me by an elderly Indian lady, who used to cook for all her family. It is a simple recipe and tastes lovely served with rice. You can also use mutton instead of chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed

  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger

  • 5 peeled, seeded, and chopped tomatoes

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cubed

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in cumin seed and cook until they start to pop, 20 to 45 seconds. Stir in onion, and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Season with turmeric, cayenne, garam masala, garlic, and ginger. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant.

  2. Puree the mixture with the tomatoes in a blender until smooth. Return the puree to the saucepan, and add the chicken. Simmer gently until the chicken has cooked, about 20 minutes; add water as needed while cooking to maintain desired consistency.
