When the masala is cooled down, in a mixer grinder, grind it into a thick paste. In another pan, add the entire chicken pieces, masala, with a pinch of salt and half-cup of water. Leave it to cook by closing the pan. In another pan, melt the butter. Reduce the flame and add kasoori methi, jeera powder and garam masala to it.

Add this egg-fresh cream mixture to the curry. Finally, garnish the curry with coriander leaves for additional flavour.
