Directions

1. Cut chicken into 11/2 inch cubes. Transfer in a deep bowl. Add ¼ th cup sour cream , ¼ th cup of yoghurt, half of ginger and garlic paste, salt (2 tsp). Mix thoroughly and marinate for 2 -4 hours (in fridge).
2. Finely chop onions and tomatoes.
3. Take oil in a pan. Heat it well– add cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, cumin seeds and cardamom to it. Add onions to it. Fry till they turn light brown ( I cook them on high – constantly stirring). Add the remainder of ginger and garlic pastes to it. Stir. Add tomatoes. Add chili, turmeric powder and salt (1 tsp). Cover and cook on medium flame. Stir occasionally. When the tomatoes are nicely done (the oil should come out), add the cup of chopped cilantro leaves, and stir. If you are using crushed tomatoes, there is no need of covering the pan, just keep stirring until the oil comes out – it should appear on the side of the pan. Add remaining sour cream and yoghurt. Stir and leave it to cook on high medium for about 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the marinated chicken. Stir well, cook covered on low-medium for 30 – 40 minutes or till the chicken gets done. Adjust the amount of salt and chili powder. Add remaining cilantro just before serving. Serve chicken curry with rice or bread (flat bread works the best)

I think the Nutrition calculator is not adding correctly. Someone mentioned that it

    Either the recipe calculator is broken or your nutritional value is WAY off. Putting in your ingredients, even subbing low fat sour cream and yogurt, it still came in at 198 calories according to the calculator. - 6/20/09

    This recipe sounds wonderfully aromatic. I wonder if it would work with just yoghurt and no cream? I think I'll give it a try. Thanks for posting. - 3/1/09

  • Made this for dinner tonight. Absolutely divine! I would cut down on the cilantro, but other than that, it was a big hit! We ate it with warmed Naan. Yum! - 9/17/12
