  Chicken 2 1⁄2 Pound, cut into pieces (1.25 Kilogram)
  Unsalted butter 3 Ounce (75 Gram)
  Corn oil 1 Tablespoon
  Onions 2 , sliced
  Bay leaf 1
  Natural yogurt 6 Fluid Ounce (175 Milliliter)
  Ginger pulp 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. Place the chicken pieces in a bowl.
2. Melt the butter with the oil in a haandi or heavy-based saucepan and fry the onions and bay leaf over a medium heat for about 2 minutes.
3. While the onions are cooking, beat the yogurt lightly and add the ginger, garlic, turmeric, chilli powder, ground cardamom, garam masala, salt and ground almonds. Pour the spice mixture on to the chicken and mix together.
4. Add the chicken mixture to the onions and stir to mix. Lower the heat, cover with a lid and cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring at least once.
5. Remove the lid and stir carefully. Add fresh coriander. Serve directly from the haandi, if you like.
