1 Tablespoon ginger, chopped
2 Tablespoons garam masala
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

6-7 cloves garlic, chopped
****As you know, part of the credo at Platonic Paleo is that I give you doable, delicious, and nutritious recipes which won't send you running to the store for odd ingredients. There are a LOT of spices and related ingredients in this one, and I don't want to stress you out. If you don't have one or two of the ingredients above, don't worry about it. The rest of the spices can shoulder the load of the great flavor of this dish. The only ingredient you absolutely need need for this one is the garam masala.
Friends, this is a really easy recipe, direction-wise. You are going to be wowed how easy and quick it can be to create an intense and well-rounded flavor.
3. Now get your sauce ingredients together. Chop what needs chopping, per the ingredients list. Toss the tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, salt, ginger, all the spices, and the garlic in your food processor or powerful blender
5. When the chicken is done sauteing, remove it from the pan onto a cutting board and chop it into 1"-2" pieces, touching it as little as possible because it's going to be hot.
6. Grab a different pan and toss the chicken pieces into it, and add the sauce from the food processor, and simmer together for about 10 minutes. This will help the flavors mingle, and really adds to the dish
