  3. Heat oil in a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat..
  4. When sizzling, add chicken pieces in batches of two or three, making sure not to crowd the pan..
  5. Fry until browned for only 3 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
  6. Melt the butter in the same pan.
  7. Fry the onions until translucent.
  8. Add garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant.
  9. Then add garam masala, cumin, turmeric and coriander..
  10. Saute until fragrant, while stirring occasionally..

  17. Garnish with cilantro (coriander) and serve with fresh, hot basmati rice/any flat breads. Bon Apetit!.
  18. My tip:If you can use Kashmiri red chilli powder use it. It’s a mild chilli but intensifies the colour and adds a wonderful flavour to the gravy..
  19. My tip:For the best charred results, use a well seasoned cast iron skillet if you have one. Searing your chicken in batches of two or three to avoid over crowding the pan helps fry or char (not burn) your chicken pieces.
