Chicken Curry with Coconut
1 chicken cut up
3 tablespoons Ghee or oil
3 cardamom pods
1 teaspoon fennel
1 2-inch piece of cinnamon stick (I prefer cinnamon bark)
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 medium onions, diced
1 teaspoon garlic minced (or paste)
1 teaspoon ginger, minced (or paste)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon curry powder, or to taste
1/2 cup coconut milk (see note)
1 tablespoon garam masala
4 small tomato, diced
1 1-inch square piece of tamarind (see note)

Heat the oil in a frying or sauté pan and add cardamom pods, cinnamon, fennel and cumin seeds. Fry the spices for 1-2 minutes and add the diced onions and cook until wilted. Reduce the heat and add the garlic and ginger and sauté for another 2-3 minutes (if your pan is too hot you will risk burning the garlic). Add the turmeric, curry powder, chicken, tomato, garam masala and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and mix thoroughly and cover. Let it simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens. Serve hot with rice.
