Ingredients

How to make it

  • Wash and dry chicken pieces. Make tiny slits with a sharp knife to allow the marinade to seep in.
  • Mix the marinade ingredients, and put the chicken pieces into it. Mix in well, and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  • Grill till done and browned...approx 8-10 minutes on either side, turning once. Be sure to place tray underneath to catch the drippings!!
  • Meanwhile...for the curry/gravy:
  • Grind onions, garlic and ginger. Put 2 tbs of oil in pan and fry this ground onion masala for 7-10 mins.
  • Now add tomato puree, green chillies, lime juice and dry spices. Fry for 3-5 mins.
  • Simmer and put in butter and cream and simmer, covered for approx 15 mins till oil rises to surface.
  • Now gently slide in chicken pcs and simmer for further 10-15 mins till chicken heated right thru with gravy. Adjust seasonings etc.
  • If the curry is too thick, add the drippings from the grill tray.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and cream swirls if desired!
  • Note: Can use cottage cheese cubes (paneer) instead of chicken for veggie version...as in my picture.

    Good morning Vindee... I prepare a very similar recipe and as you, I marinate the night before. I'm right with crystalwaters, this dish is one of my favourites.
