  • Anju

    heyy wldnt the ginger chicken come out with gravy????

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Anju

      You can make the ginger chicken as a dry preparation or with gravy.

      I’ve mentioned in the recipe about the gravy. I made it dry, that’s why you don’t see any gravy in the above picture.

      Cheers
      Maria

      • teenu

        @Maria, hi maria..i would like to try this recipe…bt i dont have kashirii red chilly wid me right now.so it okay..if i dont add that??its only for the colour purpose right…adding ordinary red chilly would be a good idea?

        • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

          Hi Teenu

          Its ok to add ordinary chilly powder. As you’ve said Kashmiri chilly powder is added mainly for the color.

          Hope you’ll like the recipe…

          Cheers
          Maria
