Nearly everyone I've made this dish for describes it as “Indian chili,” and true to its comfort food comparison, it’s the very first home-cooked dinner my brother and I would request every time we came home from boarding school.The spices in the garam masala blend range from the basics (cumin, coriander, peppercorns) to the exotic and unusual (saffron, fennel pollen, asafetida). For the sake of home-cookery, however, I’ve included my own simple garam masala you can make in a coffee grinder. Just be sure to wash it thoroughly before and after.

A simple yet delicious Indian chicken dish taught to me by a good friend. Works best if you have a wok. Serve with steamed or sticky rice and your choice of naan. (Start cooking the rice when you start the first step.) You can add an extra presentation flair by slicing the peppers at an angle.
This simple version of the classic Indian chicken dish uses plain yogurt, tomato sauce, ginger, garlic, Indian chili powder, garam masala, dried fenugreek leaves, and, of course, butter, for a tasty main dish served over rice.
