  • Next add the turmeric powder, chili powder & stir for a few minutes, before adding the cleaned and cut chicken pieces into it.
  • Stir for a few minutes without adding any water allowing the chicken to cook in its own steam.
  • Next, add the ginger garlic paste & stir it into the mix, till the raw smell disappears. Add salt to taste.
  • Let the sauce cook in its own steam, now add the blended thick paste of avocados into it, which gives the gravy a creamy texture. Cook covered with lid for another 5 minutes until the raw smell disappears & you smell the subtle aroma of avocados blending with Indian spices.
