Ingredients
  1. 1 whole chicken, cut
For Marinade
  1. 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  2. 1 teaspoon ginger and garlic paste
  3. 500 grams yogurt (a little over 2 cups)
  4. Salt, to taste
For Gravy
  1. 150 grams white butter (10 tablespoons)
  2. ½ teaspoon cumin seeds

  6. A pinch of garam masala
  7. Salt, to taste

For Marinade
  1. To prepare your marinating sauce, mix the red chilli powder, ginger garlic paste, yogurt and salt together in a bowl and add the chicken.
  2. Rest the chicken overnight in the refrigerator to achieve the optimum level of marinade.
  3. Before you begin cooking, roast the chicken in an oven for about 5-10 minutes until it turns to a lovely golden brown colour. If you don’t have an oven, you can sear the chicken on the pan until you obtain the desired colour.
For Gravy
  1. In a pan heat 5 tablespoons of white butter and add in the cumin seeds, let it sizzle then add the tomato puree, sugar, red chili powder, a pinch of garam masala and salt. Mix these ingredients well together on medium heat.
  2. Now it’s time to add the chicken, along with this add the remaining white butter, fresh cream and the sliced green chilies. Stir everything well together and cook until the chicken is done.
  3. Serve with rice or warm naan.
