    nice recipe..the gravy was yummy but i dont know why the chicken pieces became leathery..plz help


    Very Good! I tried this recipe and it came out good. The only changes I would like to recommend is changing the quantity of onions to 4, add 2 green chillies, 1/2 tsp. Kashmiri chilli powder, 1/2 tsp. red chilli powder, 1/2 tsp. garam masala and 10-11 tsp. oil. This makes the flavor of the chicken all come together without making it over spicy and overwhelming. I will definitely be making this dish again. Thank you!

    I tried this today. The fragrance was amazing. The taste was good too. Its a nice recipe.


    Very nice chicken recipe, dear Rachna. Thanks for the same, and keep up the good work. I am a pure vegetarian, but my daughter, who is a foodie, loves to eat dishes made out of chicken and fish. I prepared this curry only for her sake and twice in a week's time, as she liked it so much the first time. Meanwhile, I made a small change in the method of preparation, when I prepared it for the second time. Instead of using raw onion paste directly, I first cooked the onion pieces in water, cooled them , then ground into paste before adding in oil to fry roast. This way, the pungency of the onion felt less hence tasted better, my daughter said.
