1 tbsp Garam Masala
1 tbsp cumin seeds

Recipe Directions for No Butter Chicken

  1. Put a large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. When it starts to get hot, add onion, garlic, and ginger and cook for 4 minutes, or until the onion is golden.

  2. Add tomato paste, brown sugar, cumin seeds, garam masala, red chili flakes, turmeric, and salt and cook for 2 minutes.

  3. Add the chicken cubes and stir well to coat. Add the yogurt and water and cook, stirring until the chicken is done, about 8 minutes. Serve the chicken with roti or rice.

  4. NB - I didn't have tumeric, so I used 1 tsp of curry powder....but recipe calls for tumeric rather than curry powder
