This very tasty Chicken in Yoghurt curry is from our cookbook Fast and Easy Indian Cooking for TM5 and TM31, which I co-authored with Rosie Laljee. It’s simple to make with only a few ingredients, and it will definitely impress all your family and friends!
Fast and Easy Indian Cooking with 124 fabulous recipes captures the rich diversity, exciting flavours and exotic taste sensations offered by the many food cultures of the vast Indian subcontinent.
