  Chopped fresh coriander 1 Tablespoon
  Skinless boneless chicken 1 Pound, cut into 2 inch pieces (500 Gram)
  Unsalted butter 2 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Corn oil 3 Tablespoon
  Mustard seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Onions 2 , finely diced
  Garlic pulp 1 Teaspoon

  Ground coriander 2 Teaspoon

1. In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, garam masala, ground coriander, chilli powder, fresh coriander, garlic, corn oil and salt.
2. Pour the spice mixture over the chicken pieces, cover and leave to marinate for about 2 hours.
3. Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a balti pan, karahi or large saucepan, heat the butter with the corn oil and fry the mustard seeds for about 30 seconds. Add the onions and fry for 1 1/2-2 minutes. Lower the heat and add the garlic, ginger, ground coriander, chilli powder, mushrooms, lemon juice, salt and half of the fresh coriander and stir-fry for at least 2 minutes. Stir in the Greek yogurt and cream and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
4. Place the marinated chicken pieces on a heatproof dish and set under a preheated medium grill. Grill for about 7 minutes, basting occasionally and turning at least twice.
5. Drop the chicken pieces into the sauce and cook over a medium heat for about 2 minutes.
6. Transfer to a warmed serving dish and serve, garnished with the remaining fresh coriander and the diced red chillies.
