    eatrealfood's Note:

    The introduction of nut pastes into North Indian cooking is a wonderful Mughlai influence. My husband loves almond or cashew based chicken dishes such as this. (I have adjusted the typo for the quantity of the water in the recipe - you should get a fairly viscous sauce, which thickens as it stands)

      I am not too sure how thick it should be but 1 1/4 cups of water was too much. I would just add water until it looks right. I ended up adding some mashed potatoes mix to the sauce to thicken it up. I was very good over rice.
