Indian Butter Chicken
Makes: 5-6 servings

1 onion (1/2 lb.), peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
1 fresh jalapeno chili (about 1 oz.), rinsed, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
1 tablespoon salad oil
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
2 cups fat-skimmed chicken broth
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 pounds boned, skinned chicken breasts, rinsed, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1/2 teaspoon coarse-ground black pepper
Salt
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter or margarine
6 cups hot cooked white basmati rice
Lime wedges

In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine onion, ginger, chili, and oil. Stir
often over high heat until onion is lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in garam masala. Scrape mixture into a blender; add tomato
paste and chicken broth. Whirl until very smooth. Pour mixture
back into pan, add cream, and bring to a gentle boil over high heat
(mixture is inclined to spatter). Reduce heat and simmer, stirring
often, until reduced to 3 cups, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce into
a bowl. Rinse and dry pan.

Mix chicken with pepper and sprinkle lightly with salt. Set pan
over high heat; add 1 tablespoon butter and the chicken. Stir until
chicken is no longer pink on the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the
sauce and simmer over medium heat, stirring often, until chicken
is no longer pink in the center (cut to test), 3 to 4 minutes. Cut
remaining butter into chunks and stir into sauce until melted.

Spoon chicken and sauce onto rice. Add salt to taste. Squeeze lime
juice over portions.
