Chicken Moglai

1 Large chicken, skinned, meat removed and cut into chunks
12 oz clarified butter, ghee, or unsalted butter
2 Onions, grated (medium size)
2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 Inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
9 Garlic cloves, crushed
6 Green cardamoms, broken slightly open
2 1 1/2-inch cinnamon sticks
4 Eggs, lightly beaten
4 tbsp. Sugar
6 tbsp. Ground almonds
27 fl Cream
Flaked almonds to garnish


Heat the ghee or butter in a large wok over moderate heat and fry the onions with the salt until translucent.
Add the ginger, garlic, cardamoms, and cinnamon sticks.
Stir-fry until the onions are golden brown.
Add the chunks of chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, sugar, ground almonds and cream.
Lower the heat to “very low” and pour the egg and cream mixture into the wok.
Simmer gently for 5-7 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and tender. Be careful not to overcook the sauce, or the eggs and cream will curdle.
Serve garnished with flaked almonds.
