Dahi Malai Murgh/Creamy Chicken Dry.

Dahi Malai Murg or Cream Chicken absolutely lipsmacking dish ..Mild spiced creamy chicken chunks are just too tempting..I have made a dry version of this dish ..Usually its a thick gravy kinda dish and the gravy is nothing but thick yogurt marinade and lots and lots of fresh cream or malai ..I have kept it semi dry with just little cream to just coat the succulent chicken.
