Have a lovely recipe for Butter Chicken that you should be able to get the ingredients for locally... I make it quite often when we have company who want to sample some Indian fare

2 Tbs minced ginger
3 Tbs minced garlic
1/2 c ground almonds
2/3 c thick plain yoghurt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp garam marsala
4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
14 oz tin chopped tomatoes
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 kg skinless, boneless chicken chopped into large pieces
5 Tbs ghee (clarified butter)
1 large onion
6 Tbs finely chopped cilantro/coriander leaves
4 Tbs heavy cream

Mix garlic, ginger and almonds into a paste.
Add yoghurt, spices, cardamom pods, tomatoes and salt.
Blend with a fork.
Add the chicken pieces and stir to coat.
Cover and marinate for 2 hours or over night I usually add all this to a large ziplock bag and throw it in the fridge overnight for the best flavour.

350 degrees F Preheat oven

In a frying pan, add the ghee and onions, fry until softened. Add the chicken mixture and fry for 2 minutes.
Mix in the coriander.
Pour everything into a shallow baking dish, add the heavy cream and stir with a fork.

Bake 1 hour. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving as the oil will rise to the surface this can be skimmed off before serving.

This sounds wonderful. I have never had Indian food. Is it spicy? I cook for my dad as well, but he won't eat spicy food.

Its generally spicy but u can use less spices as per your taste. Or you can add a spoonful of cream or grinded cashewnut paste to dilute the spicy taste.

I don't find this spicy... but you could always omit the chili powder
