Start by preparing the chicken. Cut the chicken thighs into 1 – 1 ½ inch pieces and sprinkle coriander, cumin, and salt all over the chicken. Stir in the yogurt until all the pieces are coated evenly. When done place the chicken in the bottom of a 6-qt slow cooker and put the jalapeno on top of the chicken.
For the sauce start by melting the butter on a separate medium sauté pan over medium high heat. When done add the onions, garlic, and salt. Stir and cook but continue frequent stirring until onions start to lightly brown around the edges.
Then stir in the gaham masala and ginger and cook until it becomes fragrant this should take around a minute. Add the crushed tomatoes and sugar, stir well making sure the bottom of the pan is scrapped of any caramelized bits and bring to boil.
