HOW TO COOK


wash and marinate chicken with half turmeric,salt,1 tsp GGP..Over night marination is good for best recipe or at least keep this aside for 1 hour......*I went with over marination step..

chop  onion and  tomatoes into pieces..heat a pressure cooker or any other vessel with 2 tbsp oil and add in whole spices(from 1-5) and saute..Then add chopped onions and fry well..add tomatoes and mix again....

Now throw cashews and almonds and mix well.cook till mushy..Turn off flame and blend into fine puree.

heat again other vessel with butter and roast chicken until soft and tender..This step is optional.You can add marinated chicken directly into gravy,But pre-roasting saves cooking time and chicken can easily mix with gravy..

Turn on heat again other vessel and add 1tbsp oil and saute cumin..Add in blended puree and mix carefully.To this add chicken and fold it well..Cook it for 5 minutes in medium flame by closing with lid.

Now pour cream and yogurt in gravy and combine every thing finely..You can add color mixed warm water this time,but I skipped this step. But,mughlai dishes use food color often in dishes..

Cook it for few more minutes in low flame or until chicken turns soft and then turn off..I already roasted chicken before,so,it took less time to cook gravy.If you add raw chicken into gravy you many need more time to cook til chicken soft.

Finally add cilantro leaves and turn off.Serve hot with naan/roti/pulka..Along with a lemon wedge and onion slices..

EASY TO DO WITH STEP WISE PICTURES:
