The recipe is hard to read. Can you type it up? I haven't ever made Indian food before, but it looks good.

2 Tablespoons butter
1 Cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 Tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 whole rotisserie chicken skin removed and chopped in chunks
1/3 Cup half and half
¼ Cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add ginger, chili powder, turmeric, and cinnamon; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, brown sugar, salt and pepper.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken, cream and sour cream; simmer uncovered for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Serve over rice if desired.
