The Process to Make Nimbu Chicken

Prepare the Marinade: Blend dahi, soaked cashews, garlic, ginger-garlic paste, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and water to form a smooth paste. Marinate the chicken in this cashew paste for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best results.

Cooking the Gravy: In a pan, heat oil and butter. Add ginger, cardamom pods, and chillies, and fry them lightly. Add the marinated chicken along with all the spices - salt, pepper, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala, and sugar. Add water (1/2 - 3/4th cup) and let it cook.

Simmering: Cover the pan and let the chicken cook for 10-15 minutes until the gravy thickens and the chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Finishing Touches: Add more lemon juice, adjust the salt, and add cream and kasuri methi to the gravy. Stir well to combine all the flavours.

Garnishing: Garnish the Nimbu Chicken with a dollop of cream and freshly chopped coriander.
