When I think of fragrance, aroma, or a pleasant smell, I think of my mom’s chicken in yogurt sauce , instantly it awakens my appetite, I cannot wait to taste it.
Chicken by itself has no pleasing qualities, whether I look at it or smell its flesh, it turns me off. I turn around to see something more pleasing to my eyes than a body of a chicken. It is so strange when this same animal when it’s smeared with the spices in my mother’s cupboard, cooked by my mom, I forget an hour ago, I disliked it and now am eager to eat it.
The spices my mother uses are, ginger, garlic, cumin, coriander, cloves, nutmeg, cardamoms green and brown, cayenne, cinnamon stick and the bay leaf,mixed together with fried onions, clarified butter and yogurt, they give the most heavenly aroma. These are the ingredients my mom uses to cook the chicken.
This is the recipe to cook chicken in yogurt sauce. It’s flavor is unbelievable and it is very tasty!
