20 grams light butter
3 crushed garlic cloves

- To make the sauce: Add 20 grams of light butter to the pan, and reduce to medium heat. Add 1/2 sliced onion, garlic, garam masala, and stir to combine. Blend 400g of tomatoes in a blender. Cook the mixture for 45 seconds, then add the tomato sauce. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add chicken to sauce: Return the browned chicken pieces to the pan, along with any accumulated juices, and use a wooden spoon to settle the chicken into the sauce. Simmer for 3-5 minutes over medium-low heat, until the chicken is tender and cooked through.
- Garnish and serve: Season to taste with salt and pepper if necessary. Garnish with coriander and serve hot.
