      Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)
      Makes 4 servings

      1 tablespoon peanut oil
      1 shallot, finely chopped
      1/4 white onion, chopped
      2 tablespoons butter
      2 teaspoons lemon juice
      1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
      1 teaspoon garam masala
      1 teaspoon chili powder
      1 teaspoon ground cumin
      1 bay leaf
      1/4 cup plain yogurt
      1 cup half-and-half
      1 cup tomato puree
      1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
      1 pinch salt
      1 pinch black pepper

      1 tablespoon peanut oil
      1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite size pieces
      1 teaspoon garam masala
      1 pinch cayenne pepper
      1 tablespoon cornstarch
      1/4 cup water

      1 Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Saute
      shallot and onion until soft and translucent. Stir in butter, lemon juice,
      ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon garam masala, chili powder, cumin and bay
      leaf.

      Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, and cook for 2 minutes,
      stirring frequently. Stir in half-and-half and yogurt.

      Reduce heat to low,
      and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Season with salt pepper.
      Remove from heat and set aside.
      2 Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook
      chicken until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

      Reduce heat, and season with
      1 teaspoon garam masala and cayenne. Stir in a few spoonfuls of sauce, and
      simmer until liquid has reduced, and chicken is no longer pink. Stir cooked
      chicken into sauce.
      3 Mix together cornstarch and water, then stir into the sauce.

      Cook for 5
      to 10 minutes, or until thickened.

      Note:
      Garam masala may be purchased in Indian markets and in the gourmet section of
      some supermarkets.
