Indian Butter Chicken (Murgh Makani)
(From the local newspaper, here.)

It's fair to point out that I've never had "real" Butter Chicken, so I actually have no idea if this resembles the usual dish or not. Having never had it before, I was a little sad that it didn't taste more...buttery? Maybe that's because I didn't use cream. Anyway, I'll probably investigate some other recipes before I make this again.

Serves 4

1 tbsp oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 - 1 1/4 lbs seitan, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 cup tandoori marinade (I used Patak's)
one 14 oz can whole tomatoes, finely chopped, with juice
2 cups baby spinach (optional)
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream OR plain yogurt (I used half & half)
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped (optional)

In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until it begins to brown, about 8 minutes. Add the seitan and tandoori paste and cook, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and juice and lower heat to maintain a gently simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, about 30 minutes. Add the spinach, if using, and stir to wilt the leaves.

Remove the pan from the heat and allow to stand for 1 minute. Add the cream or yogurt and cilantro and stir well to combine. Serve with basmati rice or naan.

Note: If you can't find 14 oz cans of while tomatoes (which I couldn't), substitute 3/4 cup diced tomatoes and 1 cup tomato juice. An entire can of diced tomatoes will add too much tomato and not enough juice.
