The recipe for chicken handi was super tasty but I made a few changes. I did not add tomatoes and doubled the amount of yogurt. This made my chicken handi more creamy.

This was fabulous! I added extra a sprinkle of garam masala to the chicken with the salt before cooking it, added a bit of heavy cream with the yogurt and about 1/4 cup of powdered cashews to thicken the curry up. It turned out fabulous.
