Creamy Chicken, Malai Chicken

Preparation time (approx) : 50 mins | Serves 12 persons
Cooking spicy chicken is really easy and this is one of my best chicken recipes . It is slightly similar to traditional Chicken Qorma ( Also called chicken curry ) but addition of fresh cream and spices makes it different from other recipes. It has little bit of creamy texture due to the addition of cream and tastes very delicious
