Notes
The restaurant I had this sabzi served it with a garnish of kurkuri beans.. Basically a fritter similar to kurkuri bhindi. You may make that, out of the 4 attempts I made at home I made the kurkuri thing thrice,, But the recipe gets more complicated and takes longer time.. So to reduce the hassle, I skipped it the fourth time, and it was still great ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are a person who likes eating chicken pieces in a dish with a hand, you would like the kurkuri thing in the dish.
Also in the dish at the restaurant, it was loaded with black cardamons & cloves.. I skipped ๐Ÿ™‚
You can add tamarind pulp instead of amchoor powder, I ran out of it that's why replaced with amchoor powder.
