Cream Chicken recipe

Cream Chicken recipe

The name says it all! ‘Cream ’- Succulent pieces simmered slowly in a mix of flavourful spices, and rich cream.This dish is perfect for this weather, when it is starting to get a bit chilly, and the skies are getting a little darker. All you need is warm comforting food at the end of the day, with your family.

It is not something that you can have everyday, as it is not light.yes! and I will not pretend it is. It uses a lot of cream, but of course somedays when you are craving for some luxurious comforting food,  this delicious creamy gravy  with a side of steamed rice, or buttered naan, or even just plain roti/bread , is all what you want!!

This recipe is really quick, and you do not need too many ingredients, neither there is too much chopping, as in other gravies.


I make this recipe in ghee, but you can use butter(that makes it more rich), or any oil … but if you are anyways using  cream, then a 1-2 teaspoons of ghee really do not matter. Might as well, make it the way it is supposed to be cooked. Right ?
