Diet Friendly Butter Chicken

Chicken thigh or chicken breast allowance cut up into pieces
Half a tomato - I use an all natural tomato paste about 2 tablespoons
30 g of finely chopped onions
1 clove garlic
Ginger - the size of the clove
½ tsp of tumeric
½ tsp of cumin
½ tsp of chilli powder
½ tsp of garam masala
¼ tsp of paprika
¼ tsp of cinnamon
salt to taste
fresh coriander as a garnish
1-2.5 cups of water depends on how much soup/sauce you want, but this dish is to be eaten with the soup
1 tsp of oil or you can use cooking spray

Spray or add oil to a non stick pan, add onions and caramelize for about 5 mins
Form a paste of garlic and ginger with a hand blender, and add to pot, let sit for about 2 mins
Add chicken pieces
Add tomato paste, mix to cover
Add some of the water, throw in all spices
Let simmer, to get sauce thick
Add more water as needed
Let simmer
Add fresh coriander
Serve and enjoy with crispy mountain bread

Some side notes
Its best to use the little bit of oil I just find it cooks better
all those spices are quite strong and if u cannot handle spicy things than add chilli powder and garam masala to taste…turmeric is very important to Indian cooking and also the sauce should turn out to look like a creamy orangey tomato sauce…also the water amount is dependant to what you want, u can always add some more…also I didn’t really measure out all the ingredients because Indian cooking varies to what u want basically a pinch of whatever you want here and there, i tried my best to make equiv measurements but add things to ur taste…hope u enjoy it!...
