4) Add tomatoes and garam masala. Now cook covered for 10 minutes or till the the chicken is tender.
5) Gradually add in the milk .Cook further on low ehat for 3 to 5 minutes stirrinf continuously.

Since my family doesn’t like spicy and dry dishes I used the same measurements for ½ kg chicken and omitted the chilli powder- the reason why the dish has a bit of gravy and is yellow in colour. Otherwise it’s red and a bit dry.
