50g butter
1.6kg chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into thirds
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 teaspoons ground coriander seed
3 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground allspice
½ teaspoon chilli powder
4 tablespoons tomato paste
1 ½ cups tomato puree
2/3 cup natural yoghurt
1 cup thickened cream

coriander leaves and extra yoghurt

Method
