  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  5. Return the sauce to the pan and add the garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Cook for 5 minutes.

  6. Add the baked chicken to the sauce and simmer for 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

  7. Stir in the heavy cream and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
