My mother is Indian and made this recipe countless times when I was a child. Serve with Basmati rice or Naan bread and you'll be licking your plate!

Very nice and very easy to make! Thank you for posting, Moni and thank you to Moni's mum for the recipe! I was fairly vague about the quantities I used, but I did follow the timings quite carefully and the chicken came out deliciously tender and perfectly cooked. Served with Basmati rice, some dhal and raita.
