Maharani Chicken Curry

Serves 4

What you’ll need:


Wash the chicken and dry with paper towels. Remove the skin and discard. Melt the butter or margarine in a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid and sauté the chicken until nicely browned all over – 10 to 15 minutes; remove. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and sauté until golden – about 10 minutes. Add the tomato, salt, curry powder, cinnamon stick, cardamom seeds, turmeric, cumin, paprika, and red pepper flakes; cover and cook over low heat 3 minutes.

Stir in the yogurt until well blended. Add the chicken pieces and simmer, covered, turning chicken occasionally, 30 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken is fork tender. Arrange the chicken on a platter and spoon on sauce.
