Title: Chicken in silky almond sauce
Categories: Main dish, Poultry
Yield: 8 Servings
16 Pieces skinned chicken
2 tb Chopped fresh ginger
2 tb Vegetable oil
2 ts Ground cardamom
1/2 c Vegetable oil
2 ts Ground red pepper
5 Medium onions thin sliced
1 ts Ground cumin
6 tb Blanched slivered or
1/2 ts Ground fennel
2 c Plain yogurt
3 tb Ground coriander
1 c Water
Fresh cilantro (garnish)
Pat chicken dry. Heat smaller amount of oil in heavy large skillet
or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add chicken in batches and cook
on all sides just until no longer pink (do not brown). Remove using
slotted spoon and set aside. Heat remaining oil in skillet. Add
sliced onion and fry until wilted and pale brown, stirring
constantly to color evenly, about 12 minutes. Stir in almonds,
coriander, ginger, cardamom, ground red pepper, cumin and fennel and
cook 3 to 5 more minutes. Remove mixture from heat. Transfer half of
mixture to processor or blender. Puree with 1/2 of the yogurt and 1/2
of the water. Repeat with the rest of the mixture, yogurt and water.
Pour sauce back into skillet. Add chicken to skillet. Place over
medium high head and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer
until chicken is tender and sauce is thickened, about 45 minutes.
Remove from head.
Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes (dish is best
refrigerated and reheated). Rewarm over low heat. Transfer to
serving dish, garnish and serve immediately.
