Yield: 4 servings
|8||Chicken thighs, skinned|
|1 can||(8-oz) tomatoes, drained|
|2 tablespoons||Tomato paste|
|2 tablespoons||Chili sauce|
|2||Garlic cloves, crushed|
|1||Inch piece fresh gingerroot, grated|
|1 tablespoon||Garam Masala|
|2 tablespoons||Light soy sauce|
|Juice of one lime|
|Juice of one lemon|
|Twists of lime peel|

Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Slash meaty parts of chicken two or three times.
Place chicken in a shallow non-metal dish and set aside. Put tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili sauce, sugar, Garam Masala, soy sauce, gingerroot, garlic, lime juice and lemon juice in a blender or food processor fitted with the metal blade; process until pureed. Pour over chicken, cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours to allow chicken to absorb flavors.
Preheat oven to 375 F. (190C). Put chicken and the sauce in a roasting pan and cook, uncovered, 45 to 50 minutes, or until tender, basting with sauce 2 or 3 times during cooking. Serve hot, garnished with twists of lime and lemon.
