Chicken Rezala is a perfectly balanced dish. It is neither too sweet, sour or spicy taste-wise.

In addition, its texture is also like a semi gravy dish that goes perfectly with both rice and Indian bread.

It gently teases your palate and makes it want more of it again and again.

Usually, only dry red chilies are added to make the gravy but because we like our food spicy, I have also added some red chilli powder to it to give it that extra kick.

However, many people opt for cooking chicken pieces with white pepper powder to keep the nutty gravy whiter in color.

Mughlai dishes are very rich, cooked for many hours, and are layered with flavors.

Hence, usage of whole spices, cashew and poppy seeds, onion paste, ginger and garlic, kewra water, etc is quite common in this cuisine.
