6 chicken thighs skinned and boned

For the marinade:

½ thumb sized piece of ginger grated  

3 cloves garlic sliced

1 tsp garam masala

½ tsp turmeric

100ml natural yoghurt

For the sauce:

50g unsalted butter

1 large onion diced

4 cloves garlic crushed

1-2 large green chillies finely diced or to taste

½ thumbsized piece of ginger grated

2tsp garam masala,  1tsp ground cumin, 1tsp ground coriander
