4 1/4 stars. Quite flavourful. I used bone in breast & bone in leg with thy and cut it down accordingly for 2. I used regular freshly ground black pepper instead of white. Yogurt like another reviewer rather than the cream and cashews. No green chili as we don't like hot spicy. I used butter rather than ghee and put paprika on top instead of the chat masala. Ate atop recipe#126307, with yogurt, a fresh Afghan salad I will be posting and we squeezed lemon on top at the table (low table where we sit on the floor) Sunnah.
