  1. Marinate the Chicken well and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to get that mouth watering taste.

  2. The ingredients that we use make this dish thick and tasty. If you think the gravy is too thick, you can add some hot water at any given stage.

  3. To make the curry attractive and go with its name “Red Chicken “ I have used a pinch of red food colour, which is optional. You can also add Ajinomoto if you like. But I have not used it in this recipe.

  4. Use Calumpang nuts (saara pappu or chironji or charoli) in the recipe, that gives an excellent flavour to the dish.

  4. Take a pan and add 3 tbsp of Oil. Put the refrigerated, marinated Chicken in the Oil, allow it to cook on a medium flame until the oil separates.

    I am very bad at cooking but followed directions here and made it for a party. It was rich, creamy and flavorful. I thought maybe less quantity of cashews and almonds would be good especially if you are making more quantity
