Key Notes:

  1. You can add one small bowl of water, in case you want gravy. I prefer thick gravy for this chicken as tomatoes, spinach and water from chicken sufficiently provides that.
  2. Remember to constantly stir it whilst on heat.
  3. You can add bay leaves too for added aroma and flavour.
