1 large chicken breast cubed
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup whole milk
2 tps sugar
juice of 1/2 lime
plain yogurt

Sweat potatoes, onions ands garlic in butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook until onion is soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in flour, curry powder and garam masala; saute 30 seconds; stirring constantly; then add broth, milk and sugar. Bring soup to a boiul. reduce heat to medium low. cover and simmer, stirring often,add chicken until potatoes and chicken are tender.. about 15 minutes.  Add garbonzo bean and simmer 5 minutes. Finish soup with lime juice, yogurt, cilantro and chutney and sheddreded coconut.
