Pureed onions and toasted cashews give the sauce a creamy texture and rich flavour without adding any cream. If you love spice, don't seed the hot peppers. Serve with steamed basmati rice and a dollop of mango chutney.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup unsalted raw cashew
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 onions sliced
  • 2 green hot peppers or jalepeno peppers, seeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon each ground coriander and garam masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 450 g boneless skinless chicken thighs quartered
  • 1 1/2 cup no-salt-added chicken broth
  • pinch saffron (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lime juice

Method

In large skillet, toast cashews over medium heat, stirring often, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to food processor. In same skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook onions, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Add to food processor; puree until smooth.

Combine hot peppers, garlic, ginger, coriander, garam masala, cayenne pepper, nutmeg and salt. Add chicken; toss to coat.

Heat remaining oil in same skillet over medium-high heat; brown chicken, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tbsp water, scraping up browned bits. Stir in broth, saffron (if using) and cashew puree; simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 5 minutes.

Stir in yogurt and lime juice; heat until warmed through but not boiling.
