Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
    Butter Chicken

    2 lbs chicken skinned (or 1.5 lbs boneless chicken)
    1 cup plain
    1 inch piece of ginger
    8 cloves garlic
    2 tablespoon lime juice
    4 inch stick of cinnamon
    8 cloves
    8 cardamoms
    10 black peppercorns
    1 tablespoon oil
    2.25 pounds tomatoes
    1 teaspoon dried fenugreek leaves (optional)
    1 tablespoon white pepper (essential)
    1 ounce cream (optional but recommended)
    1/2 lb butter
    Fresh coriander for garnishing
    Make a smooth paste of yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms, peppercorns and the oil. Marinate the chicken in this for 6 hours, in a fridge.
    Bake the chicken in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 250 F (130 C). Put it aside.
    Cut tomatoes, put them in a pan (no water) and boil. When the quantity has dropped by half, strain through a fine sieve. What comes out of the sieve is the tomato sauce.
    Take a pan, start heating the sauce, add the butter. When the butter is melted, add the white pepper, salt, fenugreek leaves and cream. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Mix the chicken pieces into this sauce. Cover and cook on a low flame until the chicken is done. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve with rice.
