MURGH MALAI (cream chicken)

Murgh Malahi is an Indian Pakistani cuisine but it is used in the restaurants all over Indian subcontinent. The main ingredients in this dish are used cream and chicken.
Herbals and spices used in this are similar all over subcontinent with a small difference according to the customer, Its very simple and tasty recipe.
We can not get Malai in United Kingdom so we use cream which is same as malai,
The way malai is made in Indian subcontinent is heating non-homogenized whole milk to about 80 °C (180 °F) for about one hour and then allowing to cool.
A thick yellowish layer of fat and coagulated proteins forms on the surface, which is skimmed off. Hope you will like it.
