Chicken Curry with Tomatoes

3 chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
1/2 medium yellow or white onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 can chicken broth
1/3 cup sour cream (NOT low-fat)
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 quart stewed tomatoes, chopped, drained
olive oil for sauteeing

1 teaspoon cumin seed, whole
1 teaspoon coriander seed, whole
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ginger, dry, powdered
1/2 teaspoon chile powder, mild
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon clove
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
12 cardamom pods, cracked, seeds removed

Cut chicken breasts into 1/2" x 1" chunks. Place in glass bowl
and set aside.

In a hot dry cast iron skillet, dry roast the cumin and coriander
seeds for 30-60 seconds. Do not burn. Remove roasted seeds from
skillet. Open cardamom pods and remove the black seeds. Discard
the woody pods. Add toasted cumin and coriander seeds and other
spices to a spice or coffee grinder and grind to a fine powder.
Sprinkle all the powdered spices over the chicken pieces and mix
well with a spoon. Be sure all the chicken pieces are coated with
the spice mixture. Cover and place in refrigerator to marinate
for at least two hours or overnight.

Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in tava, wok or large saute pan.
Heat oil and add chopped onions. Saute until translucent. Add
garlic and saute another 30 seconds. Remove onions and garlic from
pan and set aside. Remove chicken from refrigerator and add some
more oil to the pan and saute the chicken pieces a few at a time
until browned. Set the browned chicken aside and saute more until
all the chicken has been browned. Do not overheat the pan as this
will burn the spices stuck to the pan. If the spices on the bottom
of the pan are burned, then wash the pan. Return the chicken to
the pan and add the sauteed onions and garlic. Add chicken broth
to pan. Mix ingredients well, deglazing the browned spices off
the bottom of pan. Simmer chicken uncovered until liquid is reduced
by half, about 45 minutes. Add drained tomato chunks. Continue
to simmer another 5 minutes or so. The liquid should be reduced
so that it is the thickness of gravy. Mix the sour cream and the
plain yogurt together well. Remove the pan from the heat and stir
in the sour cream-yogurt mixture. Serve immediately over plain
basmati rice.
