  1. Clean chicken and remove the skin.
  2. Make a smooth paste of yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms, peppercorns and the oil.
  3. Marinate the chicken in this for 6 hours.
  4. Bake the chicken in a preheated oven for 10 minutes at 250°F (130°C). Put it aside.
  5. We need to get a tomato sauce.
  6. Cut tomatoes, put 'em in a pan (no water) and boil.
  7. When the quantity has dropped by half, strain through a fine sieve.
  8. What comes out of the sieve is the tomato sauce (this is hard work with a clumsy sieve).
  9. Take a pan, start heating the sauce, add the butter.
  10. When the butter is melted, add the white pepper powder, salt, fenugreek leaves and cream.
  11. Mix the chicken pieces into this sauce.
  12. You may like chopped coriander (cilantro) as topping.
  13. Serve hot.
  14. This works best with good rice (i.e. basmati).
