How to Make Tomato Cream Chicken

  • Marinate the chicken quarters overnight with the ginger-garlic paste and paprika.
  • Next morning, place the marinated quarters in a baking dish, pour the tomato sauce and heavy cream over it.
  • Cover the baking dish with a foil and let it cook in a 350 degree F oven for at least an hour.
  • In a separate pan, add 1 tbsp of oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves and round red chillies to the oil.
  • Once the ingredients start popping, take them off the heat and pour it into the chicken mixture.
  • Once again cover the baking dish and let it cook for an additional 20 mins in the oven.
  • After the chicken is cooked, do a dhungaar to make it taste even better.
  • Dhungaar method:
  • Take a charcoal and heat it on the gas flame for about 10 mins.
  • Once part of the charcoal turns grey and red, remove it from the flame. Add it to the chicken pan and add 1 tbsp of ghee on the hot coal. Cover immediately.
  • The smoke that is generated from the coal gives a nice, smoky taste to the chicken. You can throw the coal away after you are done with the dhungaar.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro.
