Step 1

Cook chicken in skillet over medium high heat until chicken is cooked through; set aside.

Turn heat down to medium and add tomato paste and heavy cream to skillet and bring to a simmer; about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the garlic, ginger and spices and continue to simmer for five more minutes.

Then add chicken back in and cook just to reheat chicken and coat it in the sauce. Serve over Basmati rice.
