Day 289 photo. Delicious Indian-inspired Chicken

November 17. The last thing you bought.

The last thing I bought was a bag of groceries. This is what I made.

Delicious Indian-inspired Chicken

olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 pieces of ginger, diced
3 cloves of garlic, diced
2 TBSP tomato paste
1-1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 TBSP garam masala
1 TBSP brown sugar
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp salt
1 pound boneless chicken thighs, cut into small chunks
1 bag 16oz frozen peas
3/4 cup plain yogurt

Heat the oil on medium heat and cook the onions until soft.

Add the garlic and ginger, cook for a few minutes.

Add the tomato paste and stir just until mixed in.

Add all the spices and stir well.

Add all the chicken and stir to blend. Cook until chicken is done.

While chicken is cooking, empty the bag of frozen peas into a colander and rinse under hot water for 1 minute. This should defrost them but not cook them.

When the chicken is done, add the peas. Stir and cook for a few minutes until peas are done.

Add the yogurt and stir. Let it bubble for about 5 minutes to really blend and turn into a creamy sauce, stirring occasionally.

Serve with rice and enjoy.
