Indian Butter Chicken

A recipe for Indian Butter Chicken already exists on this blog. This is Kannagi's version, with added potatoes, because I'd rather eat a potato than a chicken.

1 T. butter
2 T. cashew nut

Fry the nuts in butter and remove.

1 T. butter
1 chopped onion

Add to pan and fry until onion is cooked.

2 T. ginger garlic paste

(you can buy this in a packet, or make your own by pureeing 1 T. garlic and 1 T. ginger root)
Add to pan and fry.

1/2 lb chicken cubes
1/2 lb potato cubes
1/4 t. turmeric
1/4 t. chili powder
1/4 t. coriander powder
1/4 t. garam masala

Add to pan and fry.

4-5 tomatoes, pureed

Add to pan and fry. When potatoes and chicken are done, add:

1/2 c. coconut milk
1 T. chopped cilantro

Heat through.

Serve with rice and naan.
