CHICKEN DILRUBA
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped ginger
  • 6 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil
  • 3-to-4-pound chicken, skin removed, cut into small serving pieces
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin or squash seeds
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 to 3 fresh green cayenne peppers, stems and seeds removed, minced
  • Salt and ground cayenne to taste
  • A few strands whole saffron, soaked in two tablespoons warm milk
    1. Put the onions and ginger into a blender or food processor and process to a smooth paste, about the consistency of applesauce. Heat the butter or vegetable oil in a heavy skillet and brown the onion mixture, stirring often. Add the chicken and yogurt, mix well, and cook over medium heat until the mixture becomes rather dry and the chicken begins to brown. Grind together the almonds, walnuts, and seeds until they are fine. Stir them into the milk and add to the chicken along with the garam masala, turmeric, chile, salt and ground cayenne. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the chicken is very tender and the sauce is very thick, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the saffron mixture and cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer.
