    Annita, sounds good to me… I’ll defintiely try this…100% sure….but I’ve a silly question for you….doesn’t breast chicken pieces get cooked at a stage where we add it to the browned onions+masalas and saute it for few mins even before the water adding stage…it turns white pretty quick right…???So after mixing it with oninon+masalas and then adding water to it for further cooking and gravy, I always end up with breast chicken pieces over done. any thoughts?

    No,Rg.I dont think chicken will cook that fast.It turns white outside,but it takes some time to cook inside.It’ll take atleast 5-7 mts after water is added.And be careful in adding water,don’t add too much of water,as the chicken pieces will also release a small amount of water from itself.And always cook in medium heat.Check in btw,and if you think the chicken is overcook ,just switch off the stove  .

    I was looking for a non veg recipe which calls for Kasoori Mehti & there I found this perfect recipe what I was looking for. Just a doubt – when you say 2 chicken breast , could you please tell me what would be in terms of weight ? I would prefer to try this recipe with the whole chicken rather than boneless as I love to chew on the bones.



    It was around 1 pound,Tanya.Many thanks for dropping by.Try out and let me know if u liked it,ok?

    I am a novice cook who started cooking after coming to US. I loved your blog, my only complaint is when you buy onions from US stores they tend to be big so when your recipe says use of 2 onions, my curries were sweet before realized my gross error. I wish the weight of onion and tomato would be included in the recipe rather than the number
