Butter Chicken
A perfect recipe: a gift from my daughter, Sangeetha.

Combine 1 cup yogurt, ½ tsp. each chopped ginger and garlic, 1 tsp. salt, 1 Tbsp. chili powder, ½ tsp. turmeric, 1 tsp. lemon juice, and a 14.5-ounce can of crushed tomatoes. Marinate a chicken cut into pieces in the mixture for 10 minutes. Finely chop 2 onions and fry in a large skillet with 2 Tbsp. butter and 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken and marinade to skillet and cook 10 minutes; add 3 Tbsp. cream and simmer 10 minutes. When chicken is cooked through, garnish with cilantro (optional) and serve with rice.
