NITISHA

This is a traditional Muglai dish prepared in India. It gets its name from the succulence of the meat after prolonged marinating and light braising. Traditionally, chicken, beef or lamb meat is used, but prawns or scallops are good substitutes too for this smooth as silk kebabs. Serve with chatnis (dips made from coconut, cilantro and mint, usually found in Indian grocery stores) or tomato sauce.

This stuff is amazing...I've tried it several times with chicken, beef and shrimp. It was good with all of them even though I had been hesitant about the shrimp. I have also substituted yogourt for the cream and it was still quite good.

This is worth the time and effort that goes into making it. Very complex flavor and not as spicy hot as it may sound. Yum!

Yummy! Very different flavor and very good. I did not try either of the sauces and it was wonderful by itself. Highly recommended!
