This is definitely one of my all time favorite Indian dish. I love hunting for Banana Leaf Rice shops and have a taste of their Chicken Masala in order to perfect mine. At the end of the day there will always be a few variation but all still taste heavenly. One of the main differences I guess is the use of yogurt as an ingredient. Some Chicken Masala I've tasted uses it and some does not. Anyways this is a version which doesn't which makes it a little on the dry side. Hope you guys enjoy it!

1 whole Chicken - cut into small pieces.
2 medium OnionsOnions

1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, fry onions till golden brown.
2. Now add the chicken, and stir.
3. Add the remaining ingredients and cook over medium flame.
4. When the oil separates from the chicken cook for additional 15 minutes, and keep stirring.
5. When the meat is cooked, reduce heat and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
6. Garnish with fresh coriander and green chili.
7. Serve with rice, roti or naan.

Indian food! Something I like!
I think if I try this recipe, I'm going to omit the yogurt too.

Hiya TF.. yeah do give it a go... actually with or without yogurt has its own unique taste. So depends very much on preference. I personally love both... LOL!
