1 tsp White vinegar

1/2 cup Cold water

1 tsp Salt

1/4 cup Cream


Directions

  1. Mix yogurt, tomato paste, white vinegar, and salt together in a bowl
  2. Add cubed chicken to bowl. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes. 
  3. In a heated pan, fry onions in butter until onions are clear.
  4. Add the contents of the bowl with chicken to the pan. Fry for 2 minutes.
  5. Add spice mix, tomato puree, & water to the pan.

Want this Dairy-Free? 

That might make it "unbuttered" chicken, but the taste is surprisingly similar! To go dairy-free, simply: 

  1. Remove the yoghurt
  2. Replace the vinegar with lemon juice (This works as a marinade instead of the yoghurt)
  3. Replace the butter with a little bit of oil when frying.
