Expert Tips

  1. Make sure to fully cook the onions and garlic before adding the chicken keema.
  2. Do not add the tomato puree with the chicken, give the chicken some time to brown by itself.
  3. Do not reduce the amount of cream in the potatoes as the mash needs to be perfectly smooth for the dish to taste good.
