1 lb chicken thighs boneless and skinless, cut into small bite size pieces
1/2 cup tomato passata or crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp ginger fresh, crushed
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp paprika sweet
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp salt or to taste

Add the tomato passata, garlic, ginger, garam masala, turmeric, paprika coriander, salt, almonds, yogurt to your food processor and process on high until smooth.
Toss the chicken with the paste and mix well. Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Add the olive oil and butter to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and cook for 5 minutes or until they start to brown a bit and are softened.
Add the chicken to the skillet, including the yogurt mixture that’s left in the bowl and cook for about 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Stir in the heavy cream and mix well. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Garnish with yogurt and cilantro, if preferred. Serve over rice and naan bread.
This dish will last up to 3 days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container. This curry freezes superbly as well! Just store it in a shallow container and be sure it’s completely cooled before popping it in. It should keep for up to 3 months if frozen, just reheat on the stove when you’re ready to enjoy it.
