Important note: When chicken is cooked with a cover on the pot, it
releases water that becomes a part of the sauce. If after 1
minutes, there isn't enough sauce in the pot, add 1/4 cup water.
Conversely if there is too much liquid in the pot, cook uncovered
till the liquid evaporates.

Variations There are several variations to the above recipe:

Leave out the yogurt. Add 1/4 cup of water just before turning the
heat to low and covering the pot.

Boil two potatoes for 1 minutes before slicing them thinly. Add
potatoes into the pot when you start cooking the chicken.

This variation is usually called 'Malai Chicken' or literally
'creamy' chicken. Leave out the yogurt. When the chicken is 3/4
done, add one small can of tomato paste. Just before removing add
a small carton of whipping cream and cook for a few minutes.
