    chicken korma

    for those of you who may prefer indian cuisine....

    3 tbls olive oil
    3 tablespoons butter
    2 large onions chopped (i prefer using the sweet yellow) i use a small chopper, goes faster that way
    6 (possibly more) plain yogurt
    2 tbls mango chutney
    4 cloves garlic chopped
    2 tsp turmeric
    1 tsp chili powder
    2 tsp garam masala
    1 tsp curry powder
    3 good handfuls of mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, pistachios) provides both taste and texture
    3 good handfuls of raisins (provides some balancing sweetness)
    5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (i cut into strips, then squares)

    here we go...

    1 preheat oven to 350 degrees (175c for everyone else). grease up a 12 qt baking dish.
    2 heat oil and butter over medium heat, cook onions until soft
    3 place onions, yogurt, mango chutney, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, and curry powder into blender, blend until smooth. may need a bit more yogurt (told ya!) if you need to thin the mix.
    spread out cut up chicken in the baking dish.
    4 pour mix from blender to a bowl, then add the raisins and nuts. stir well.
    5 pour mixed sauce from bowl and spread to cover all the chicken.
    6 bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
    7 serve over basmati rice, enjoy!

    Yum. I've actually made Chicken Tikka a few times, but we started buying it in the jar (Tiger Tiger Brand) at the grocery store and found it to be as good as home made. Now I'm hungry for it, may have to stop by the grocery store on the way home.

    Five breasts, 12 quarts...that's a lot of Korma. How much yogurt? Tablespoons? Are you feeding the platoon or does it freeze well?

    should have read halves. started out with 6 tablespoons of yogurt. when it is blended with the onions that the volume of the sauce is added.

    Sounds delicious. Most pakistanis use ready-made packets of spices. These packets contain all the spices mixed in the right quantity for each dish. You can buy those at any Indian or Pakistani grocery store or even online. You will find more selection at the stores though. The directions are on the packets.
