Starting with your chicken, put all the thighs in a bowl with your marinade ingredients. Stir to evenly incorporate and let marinate for 30 minutes or overnight (if you’re feeling ambitious and want to prep ahead of time.) 2. Heat your oil in a large skillet. Begin to get a beautiful brown sear on each sides of your chicken thighs, being careful not to crowd the pan. Repeat this process until you have seared all of your chicken, about 2-3 minutes each side. Set chicken aside, we’ll cook it the rest of the way in the curry. 3. In the same pan, melt your butter and add your onions, garlic, and ginger to sautee for a few minutes or until fragrant. Once fragrant and soft, add your garam masala, cumin, coriander and turmeric. You’re only going to fry these spices together for under a minute, you don’t want to burn them. 4. Time to pour in your tomato sauce! You can also salt this to taste, and also add in your chili powders. The chili powder is optional though, depending on your spice level tolerance. Simmer the sauce for 20 minutes, you want it to thicken and all the spices to get together. You want it to be a dark red color. 5. Now, add in your cream and sugar. You will also add your chicken, and submerge it in the sauce, allowing the chicken to fully cook in the sauce for about 10 minutes. The sauce should end being thick. If needed, there is where you’d add your water, if you’d like a looser curry. 6. Serve with rice and naan, garnish with cilantro. Or green onions, if you have the curse of cilantro tasting like soap.
