This recipe is just another kitchen accident that turned out really good. if we go as per the title the fusion happened when I tried to cook a simple Kashmiri chicken but my proportions were miscalculated and I am glad it happened. The recipe mentioned below can be cooked in two ways. the first one involves the minimal use of oil and the second one involves a good amount of oil.
