This version of Butter chicken is very simple and very tasty.
500g diced chicken (thighs are very nice in this)
2 garlic cloves
1 onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup cream
4 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon sugar (taste and add a little more if needed)
1 1/2 tsps nutmeg
1 1/2 tsps turmeric
1 1/2 tsps ground cumin
1 tsp garam masala
1 1/2 tsps cornflour, mixed with cream (if it needs thickening)
In a large fry pan sauté the onion and garlic in the butter until soft. Toss the spices through the chicken then add to the fry pan. Add the tomato paste and sugar. Stir in the cream and simmer till cooked. Season with salt and pepper.
* I often toss the spices through the chicken and then let them marinate for a few hours.
This amount would probably serve two or three with rice.
