  1. Wash and marinate the boneless chicken in the marinade for 1 hour. Marinating it overnight will give best result
  1. Cook the chicken covered on medium flame.
  2. Now heat oil in a pan.
  3. Add finely chopped onions and chopped ginger garlic, green chilly and sauté till golden brown.
  4. Add all the spice pwd, tomato paste, combine and turn off the flame.
  5. Allow to cool.
  6. Grind in a mixer to smooth paste.
  7. Melt butter in the same pan.
  8. Add this paste to hot butter.
  9. Bring to boil .
  10. If needed add  little water and cook it.
  11. The gravy should be perfect, not too thick or too thin.
  12. Now add cooked chicken pieces.
  13. Taste and adjust salt and seasonings.
  14. Simmer for few minutes.
  15. Add fresh cream, and stir. I used Amul’s cream and it gave rich aroma.
  1. Now add yoghurd, give a quick stir and turn off the flame.
  1. Garnish with some cream, chopped coriander leaves.
Murgh Makhani
