Hello Puneet

Kulchas recipe is now on site. It took me a while to write it. To write a recipe, I have to measure everything, unlike when I make it for everyday!

Hi Mamta,

Thankyou so much for this recipe. wil certainly let you know wen i try this one out.

moreover, i did try your one of three naan recipes u hav on site...i tried it wid all purpose flour n topped with chopped coriander while bakin them..n it turned out to b just great. everybody loved them here.

p.s. hey, another query...any idea abt cream chicken but not cream of of them r quite different from each other. i had cream chicken over at dinner at my friend's place..i cant now remember the recipe. all i know is its easy n quick to make. pls do let me know abt this one too.

thanks once again for takin ur time out for me n assisting me.

Glad to hear that your nans were good. I made the kulchas yesterday, they came out well. They are so easy to make, I had never got round to writing the recipe before.

May be you are looking for butter chicken recipe?

Chicken curry with saffron is also quite creamy and easy to make;

If you post your query on the forum, sometimes other regulars also give you good recipes of their own. You don't have to register to use the forum.

I will post the thread for you now, keep an eye on replies.

It is difficult to comment on a recipe working or not exactly, but it looks good, give it a try. Adding methi leaves (get dry ones if you can't find fresh ones) to a meat/chicken/fish curry adds to the flavour. I am sure it will work. Watch the chillies though, 2 tbs. of hot green chillies may be too much.

hi Mamta,

you r rite abt dried methi leaves - they add to the flavor be it chicken or aloo curry. i feel two chopped green chillies would be fine 'cos we r adding half cup of cream which would balance the hotness of the chillies.

also..wat do u think of addin can skip this 1 tbsp as i think the color of the chicken should be offwhite or cream..not yellow for the cream chicken, isnt it.

thankyou for the feedback.

take care

Hi Silk

Your recipe says 1 tsp. turmeric, not 1 tbsp. 1 tbsp. will be far too much in any case.

You can make it without turmeric. I would then put some sweet paprika, to give it a nice, pink...ish curry colour. Let me know how it comes.


Has anyone else any suggestions?

Hello there

I make cream chicken; Make any nice chicken curry and then add double cream. , Heat it through well just before serving. I do the same with a few other dishes, like Dal makhani, Lamb curry etcetera.
