Kashmiri Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by madam x

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken. It comes from "Complete Indian Cooking", a cookbook I received as a gift for my wedding. The addition of plain yogurt toward the end of the cooking time gives this a deliciously mild and creamy flavor, which makes a wonderful contrast to all the spices. This is best eaten with some good basmati rice, but plain jasmine rice works too.

This was a good basic recipe, but rather bland for our tastes. I did add some cayenne to try and spice it up, but it just seemed that there was something missing. If you have never had Indian food, this may be a good starting point.
