How to make Nizami chicken
Step 1 Wash the chicken and prepare a powdered masala
Start by washing the chicken pieces thoroughly with fresh water and pat them dry. Now, add cashews, red chillies, poppy seeds, turmeric powder and salt to a grinder and grind a fine powder.
Step 2 Prepare the curry paste
Add oil to a pan and add in the ginger-garlic paste to it. Saute until it cooks and add the chopped onions. Saute for a minute and add in the bay leaf and cook until it becomes fragrant. Now add in the chicken pieces and cook them with the onions.
Step 3 Add the yoghurt, simmer and serve!
At this point, add the yoghurt and once it combines with the pieces, add in your red chilli powder, coconut milk cream and salt to season. Cook the chicken covered for at least 10-15 min. Turn the flame off, garnish with coriander and fresh cream. Serve with hot rotis!
