3 tablespoons oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 cinnamon stick
4 green cardamom pods
2 bay leaves
package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into pieces
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (the powdered stuff)
salt to taste
minced/grated garlic to taste (I use a couple of cloves)
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 teaspoon powdered allspice
Fry the onion, peppercorns, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, cloves, and bay leaves until the onion is a rich golden brown.
Add the chicken and fry for a few minutes.
Add the turmeric, cayenne, coriander, cumin, ginger, salt, and garlic. Fry for a few more minutes.
Add 1 3/4 cup water, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Add the yogurt, allspice and simmer 10 minutes. (Be careful not to curdle the yogurt. Information on how to avoid this.)
