  2. Take a kadai, add ghee 1 teaspoon and oil, then add the bay leaf, garam masala (whole), red chilli and peppercorns, allow them to splutter.
  3. Add the chicken pieces into the kadai and allow them to fry. When it changes colour, add the cashew paste and continue to saute. You can add crushed mace (optional). Now add warm water and 1 teaspoon of sugar, then cover the lid until the chicken is nicely done.
  4. Once the chicken is done, taste the seasoning and the gravy.

My Tip:

The consistency of the gravy should not be too thick, it should be soupy type.
