  1. In a bowl, combine the chicken & ingredients for the marinade, mix well and set aside (at least an hour or overnight)

  3. Heat the oil and butter in the same pan, add the onions and cook until softened, add the garlic and ginger and stir for around 1 minute, add the kashmiri powder and mix well.

  4. Add the tomatoes, chilli powder (if using) and a pinch of salt to taste, simmer for around 10-15 minutes until the sauce thickens and darkens in colour, blend until smooth, add a splash of water if necessary.

  5. Stir in the cream and sugar, add the chicken and cook for around 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

  6. Stir through a tsp of butter before serving, serve hot alongside rice & bread.
