  1. Heat the oil and ghee in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the cumin seeds in the oil until the seeds begin to change color.
  2. Stir in chopped onion onion; cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger; continue cooking until the onions brown, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Mix in the chopped tomato, tomato paste, garam masala, turmeric, salt, serrano pepper, and water; simmer 5 minutes. Lay the chicken into the sauce; mix gently to coat the legs. Cover pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until chicken is no longer pink near the bone, about 40 minutes. Garnish with cilantro to serve.

This is an awesome "everyday" Indian dish. The person Rumshack74 who gave this a poor rating must not have used proper spices. Or maybe she was expecting normal Indian food to taste like restura...

Great recipe. I enjoyed it. The flavours were great and the sauce was nice. Easy to make with not that many spices required. Don't forget to add the salt!

Make sure your spices are FRESH!!! I tried it a second time with a new batch of Garam masala and it made all of the difference. Also used skinless chicken thighs. Good left overs too!!!

Very good flavor. I used less water so that it was less soupy. Recommended
