NotesUse more or less heavy cream based on your preference. The color of the curry will vary based on how much you use.
-I prefer chicken breast or tenders over dark meat for this recipe.
-Salt should be added at the end according to taste since a few of the ingredients are already salted
-Fenugreek Leaves/Kasoori Methi can be found at Indian Grocery stores or Amazon. --It is dried green leaves. Please do not substitute fresh fenugreek leaves/methi or fenugreek seeds for this.
