and allow to marinate for 1 hr • Heat a flat pan on medium heat and gently roast (stirring frequently)

the cloves, peppercorns, cinnamon, bay leaves and almonds till they darken slightly • Cool and add

the cardamom seeds • Grind into a coarse powder in a clean, dry coffee grinder • Mix the yoghurt,

whole spice powder (from previous step), coriander, cumin and turmeric powders and add them to

the chicken • Allow to marinate for 1 hr • Heat the oil in a deep pan on medium heat • When hot,

add the onions and fry till pale golden brown in colour • Add ginger and garlic pastes • Fry for 1 min

• Add the chicken from the chicken-spice mix and fry • Now add tomato paste, chicken stock, Kasuri

Methi and rest of the yogurt-spice mix • Cook till the chicken is tender and the gravy is reduced

to half of original volume • Melt butter in a small pan and pour it over the chicken • Garnish with

coriander leaves and serve with Naan (Indian bread) and Kaali Daal (dark lentil) • For an authentic

and traditional cooked-over-the-coals flavour: When the Butter Chicken is cooked, make a small

bowl shape with aluminium foil and place it on top of the curry (‘floating’ on it) • Heat a briquette

of charcoal on an open flame till red hot and gently put the charcoal into the aluminium foil bowl •

Cover the dish immediately (for a barbeque flavour) • Remove the cover just before serving, discard

the foil and charcoal, and serve
