Prep time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 20 minutes
In a large non-stick chef’s pan, heat ¼ the oil and a ¼ of the butter over medium-high heat. Brown ¼ of chicken pieces for about 3 minutes, then remove from the pan and set aside. Repeat with the rest of the oil, butter and chicken.
Reduce the heat to medium-low. In the oil left in the pan, saute the ginger and garlic for a minute or two, then add the ground spices and cook for a further minute. Add tomato paste to the mixture and cook for another minute.
Return chicken to the pan, along with tomato puree, yoghurt and cream. Simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken has cooked through. Taste and add a pinch of salt if necessary.
Serve with basmati rice topped with extra yoghurt and scattered with coriander leaves.
