Add chicken shake off marinade and fry on high flame until chicken is coloured in golden brown.

Use mishti doi (sweet yogurt) or whisk ½ cup yogurt with 1 tbsp of sugar well and pour the mixture into chicken. Turn the flame back on & continue cooking uncovered on lowest possible flame. Pour 1 cup water and mix. Cover and cook for 15-20 mins Dry roasted 1 Kashmiri red chilli & ground with ½ tsp kasoori methi together. Sprinkle 1 tsp of this masala to the gravy and stir well.
