How to make Restaurant Style Chicken Awadh

  1. Boil the chicken pieces in water with salt till tender.

  10. Add chopped tomatoes. Saute till oil separates. .
  11. Add already boiled chicken pieces to the gravy. Give a nice mix so that masala coats to chicken nicely.
  12. Now add cashewnut paste. Add little water to make thick gravy
  13. You can use chicken stock ( water in which you have boiled chicken) to make a thick gravy.
  14. In the end add fresh cream/yogurt.
  15. Before putting off the flame add 2 tbsp grated processed cheese(secret ingredient ) to chicken gravy.
  16. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

My Tip:

Do add grated cheese in the end before putting off the falme. It gives nice flavour to the chicken.
