Indian-Style Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani)
This is not a bad place to start. I used 2 more tomatoes, less onion (half of one), 1 more garlic, and fresh fenugreek leaves. I skipped the yogurt and used fat free half and half. A pound of chicken is also a bit much. I used one good sized breast. Also, use whole caradmom/cloves/cinnamon. Where is the turmeric?

Mensaf (Jordanian Lamb Stew)
If you don't have goat's milk, use yogurt mixed with some whole milk to thin it out.
