  5. Fry until browned for only 3 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm

  18. My tip:If you can use Kashmiri red chilli powder use it. It’s a mild chilli but intensifies the colour and adds a wonderful flavour to the gravy.
  19. My tip:For the best charred results, use a well seasoned cast iron skillet if you have one. Searing your chicken in batches of two or three to avoid over crowding the pan helps fry or char (not burn) your chicken pieces
