The maincourse dishes from 'mughlai cuisine' has rich, oily, flavorful gravy and my husband is a fan of their cuisine. One of our common favorite item is 'Chicken Rezala', thick + white + rich gravy with juicy chicken pieces. I like my rezala with thick gravy but many people also like to eat thin rezala gravy. I have already shared 'fish rezala' recipe with you and now it's time for chicken. You can make the white gravy in many ways but here I am sharing the easiest way and believe me, you won't find any difference in taste and flavor. Try this in your kitchen and enjoy with your family.
