  1. For chicken, mix spices together and rub into chicken pieces. Let it sit for 1-12 hours.
  2. Mix yogurt, oil, garlic and ginger. Set aside.
  3. Sauce:.
  4. Heat oil in large pot. (I use soup pot.).
  5. Add onion, garlic, ginger and peppers. Fry until onions are soft. Add spices and fry until they smell good, a few minutes. (Keep stirring as you don't want spices to burn.).
  6. Add sugar, tomatoes and paste.
  7. Simmer while you make the chicken. (At least an hour.).
  8. Add cream and cilantro, heat till warm.
  9. Dip chicken pieces into yogurt mixture until well coated.
  10. Place on BBQ or broil for 15 minute or so turning once. Cooking time depends on thickness of meat. It should be 160 on thermometer. I like it to sear and get a little crunchy on the outside.
  11. Let it cool and tear or cut into bite-size pieces and stir into sauce.
  12. Serve with rice or naan.
