MAHARANI CHICKEN

Photobucket

This is one of  the recipes by Asmah Laili. She is former popular DJ turned cookbook author and her recipes always seem to work not only for me but those who had tried her recipes. I have altered slightly to suit my taste and you should do so if you want a milder gravy.

Here, meat curry powder is used or you can also use your own combination of coriander powder, aniseed, cumin, chili powder and turmeric also I double up the tomato puree. It is so tasty and excellent with flavored rice, flat bread or even bread.
