  Chicken 2 1⁄2 Pound, cut into pieces (1.25 Kilogram)
  Unsalted butter 3 Ounce (75 Gram)
  Corn oil 1 Tablespoon

  Bay leaf 1
  Natural yogurt 6 Fluid Ounce (175 Milliliter)

Directions

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.
