    Ingredients
    - 1 onion, chopped
    - 1 1/2 tbs garlic & ginger puree
    - 400g can chopped tomatoes
    - chilli powder
    - pinch of sugar
    - 30g ghee or 2 tbs oil
    - 125ml water
    - 1 tbs tomato puree
    - 40g butter, chopped
    - 1/2 tsp each of garam masala, ground cumin & ground coriander
    - 8 cooked tandoori chicken pieces [i cut up a fillet into bite size pieces]
    - 4 tbs cream
    - salt and pepper
    - chopped cashew nuts and fresh coriander sprigs to garnish

    Method
    Put the onion and ginger into a food processor and whiz until a paste is formed. Add the tomatoes, chilli powder, sugar and salt and blend again.

    Melt the ghee in a pan. Add the tomato mixture and water and stir in the puree. Bring to the boil, then reduce and simmer for 5 mins until the sauce thickens.

    Stir in half the butter, the garam masala, cumin and coriander. Add the chicken and simmer for about 10mins.

    Lightly beat the cream in a small bowl with some of the hot sauce mixture, then beat into the pan. Add the remaining butter and mix through. Garnish and serve with rice.

    Jazakillahu khairan sis. I thought garam masala was a type of spice, not a mix of different types of spices. I'll try that some day inshallah.
