Chicken Kundou (Kashmiri Style Chicken)

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

Adapted from Pan American's Round the World Cookbook. Posted for ZWT6. This recipe comes from Kashmir, a region of the Indian subcontinent that is claimed by both India and Pakistan. The original says you can substitute 1 teaspoon powdered ginger for the fresh, but I don't recommend this.

We enjoyed this delicious dish very much. The very finely ground nuts added a wonderful flavor and texture to the sauce and it was mild enough for DH to handle. Thank you for sharing a very good recipe.
