This great one pot dinner was featured in Bon Appetit, January 1999. About 40minutes of the cooking time are just waiting and stewing. Note that the calories below do not reflect the optional additions (they are the ones that don't have measurements before them).

3 tablespoons canola oil
2 large onion - chopped
2 tablespoons ginger
3 garlic cloves - minced
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup plain yogurt
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
4 pounds skinless boneless chicken brea - cut in 1" strips
1 package frozen peas - (10 ounce)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup coconut milk
Fresh cilantro sprigs
Steamed white rice
Major Grey mango chutney
Sliced peeled bananas
Chopped pitted peeled mangoes
Shredded unsweetened coconut
Chopped toasted peanuts

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onions and saute until golden, about 15 minutes. Add ginger and garlic; saute 1 minute. Add curry, cumin and cinnamon; saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add flour, then yogurt and tomato paste, whisking until sauce is smooth, about 1 minute. Add broth and applesauce. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cool slightly. Cover and chill. Bring to simmer before continuing.)

Add chicken and peas to sauce. Simmer until chicken is almost cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add sour cream and coconut milk. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir until chicken is cooked through and sauce thickens enough to coat spoon, about 3 minutes (do not boil). Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl. Garnish with cilantro sprigs.

Place rice, chutney, bananas, mangoes, coconut and peanuts in separate bowls. Serve alongside curry.
