  • Mix salt and vinegar to the chicken, and set aside for 10-15 minutes.
  • In a pressure cooker heat some water, add the chicken along with vinegar, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, red chilli powder and cook for 4-5 whistles. This may vary so check accordingly and boil till cooked.
  • Peel the boiled chicken from the bones and mince in a mixer. Preserve the stock. Boneless chicken is preferable for this preparation. Alternatively, using a sharp knife finely chop the chicken pieces into shreds.
  • Heat oil in a pan, fry the finely chopped onions till color changes. Add green chillies, ginger and garlic paste and saute for a while. Add the chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder, garam masala powder and tandoori masala and fry well until the oil is released.
  • Add the minced chicken and mix well till all the spices are well blended with the chicken. Add the stock and stir well.Boil until it gets a thick gravy-like consistency. Add the boiled egg-yolk and mash it in and let it cook for a while.
  • To make it richer add butter and cashew paste. Cook till the excess moisture is absorbed. Garnish with chopped cashew pieces, freshly chopped cilantro and egg whites cut into threads.
