In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Add diced onions and stir regularly, cooking until the onions are translucent.
Add the butter and allow it to melt completely. Then stir in the ginger and garlic, cooking for about 30 seconds to a minute or until fragrant. Be careful not to burn it.
Add the chicken and cook, stirring often until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside, about 2 minutes. No need to cook it all the way through as it will continue cooking as you add the rest of the ingredients and simmer the recipe.
Now stir in the garam masala, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Then pour in the tomato sauce, tomato paste, lemon juice, yogurt, and evaporated milk. Stir to combine fully. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce.
The sauce will reduce but still be quite saucy. Serve with rice.
For the Rice Pilaf
Add rice to a fine mesh strainer and rinse well, until the water runs clear. Set aside to drain.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring often, until lightly golden. Add onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook until onion has softened.
Add vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cover pot with a lid and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15-18 minutes. Remove pot from heat and allow to rest, with the lid still on, for 10 minutes.,
Remove the lid and gently fluff the rice with a fork. Gently stir in chopped parsley.
My 11 year old daughter was born to cook and she had the time of her life!
She learned a lot of cooking skills, made a ton of great food and played games in the process.
They also gave her a very nice printed booklet with recipes, and made a wonderful YouTube video of the class.

I used them last week for my twins (boy/girl) 9th birthday party. It was fantastic!
The location, decorations, etc. were all top notch.
They handled all the details from start to finish (set up and clean up too!)

Best summer camp my 8 year old daughter ever had! She's comfortable and confident in the kitchen now,
either cracking eggs, or rolling cookie dough, or mixing on the side.
She is always so happy at the end of day talking about what they learned!
Our kids are 14 and 12, and enjoy cooking immensely.
This is a wonderful little school - easy-going and knowledgeable instructors,
inviting little kitchen, very clean and friendly.

I love to cook with my daughter.
She has taught both my husband and her friends how to cook these dishes.
Her confidence in the kitchen is astounding.
This is the ONLY camp that she has asked to repeat next year.
My 7 year old son has been begging for cooking lessons. He had a blast!
They made so much food, Dad enjoyed it for dinner and
he was so impressed that his son had made it all from scratch.
