Chicken Lababdar

Chicken Lababdar can be found on the menu of many Indian restaurants. It is a North-Indian gravy. This gravy is very rich and creamy. We usually make such dishes on special occasions or when we have some guests coming over. Chicken Lababdar is onion-tomato based gravy. You need Brown Onion Paste. You will also need Roasted Tomato Puree.  I have cooked my chicken separately in the pressure cooker.
