Heat butter in a 5- to 6-quart wide heavy pot over moderately low heat until foam subsides, then cook onions, garlic, and ginger, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add curry powder, salt, cumin, and cayenne and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook, stirring to coat, 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, including juice, and cilantro and bring to a simmer, then cover and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 40 minutes.
Just before serving: pulse cashews in a food processor or electric coffee/spice grinder until very finely ground, then add to curry along with yogurt and simmer gently, uncovered, stirring, until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
Serve over jasmine rice.

Ongakuka7This recipe is fabulous and is a firm family favourite. I have made a couple of additions to make it go further. When it is cooked and about five minutes before serving, I add a chopped red and green capsicum and a very good handful of whole cashews.2y ago
mommyswayzeWow! Easy and really yummy, a keeper for sure!3y ago
d4000hJust made this for my husband and kids - it was amazing!! Used coriander instead of cilantro as I didn't have any and used black pepper instead of cayenne. I chopped the cashews for texture.3y ago
ErincpetersIf I could rate this 6 stars, I would. The cashews added such a nice flavor, and the chicken turned out really tender. I added some chopped cabbage, which went pretty well with the flavors. My husband and I loved it, and though my two year old said "It's good, but I don't like it", overall I think it was a winner. Thanks!3y ago
