    Galley Devil's Note:

    A rich and creamy gravy which can be served with pilaf or any Indian bread. Preparation time includes the time required for the chicken to marinate. NOTE: According to the original recipe, the cream is to be added to the gravy before pouring it onto the chicken. But since the chicken still needs to cook a bit more after adding the gravy, I add it at the end to prevent the cream from curdling.
