1/2 bunch cilantro chopped (a must to capture the flavours!)
2 pounds skinned chicken pieces

On medium-low heat
Sauté first 5 items until golden brown.
Add tumeric and paste and cook for 5 minutes
Add chicken and cook for 15 minutes
Then add tomato sauce and whipping cream, cook for 50 minutes,
Add cilantro, cook for 2-3 minutes

Serve over Indian basmati rice

1 large onion, chopped
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cumin seed
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp cilantro, chopped

3 cups basmati rice and 5 cups of water

In pan (Carolyn uses her rice steamer), cook first 4 items together until light brown. Add peas, cilantro and cook for 5 minutes. Add rice and water. Cover pan and cook until rice is ready! The rice is great, the cilantro is a must again to capture taste buds!
