See what i mean? Delicious but doesn't look so pretty in pictures.


1 medium to large onion (chopped)
1 pound chicken (i use legs and thighs but that's because we don't like white meat)
1 – 1 ½ teaspoons ginger paste
1 – 1 ½ teaspoons garlic paste
8 peppercorns
½ teaspoon chili powder
salt to taste
1 cinnamon stick
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
2 whole cardamoms
½ teaspoon whole zeera
½ teaspoon ground dhuniya (optional)
½ - ¾ cup yoghurt
Shan seasoning if you want it stronger (optional - i'll usually add just a little curry powder)

Fry chopped onions, take out and spread on paper. (often i just leave them). Fry chicken in same oil.
Add garlic paste and ginger paste.
Add chili powder, peppercorns, salt, cinnamon stick, whole cardamoms, zeera.
Add yoghurt.
When chicken is done, add ground spices (cinnamon, ground cardamoms, ground cumin/zeera, dhuniya). Add onions back in.

Cover and simmer on low then turn off heat and let sit.
