    Heated the masala, added water to make the gravy begin to homogenise and boil, added the chicken and the last nights soaked kokum, drained and mashed, and some garam masala powder (wondering was it important, or I just overdid this).

    Got a real cute n soft chic, it just cooked as though it was melting in the gravy heat. Heated some butter to very hot, dropped a few curry leaves in it and poured it all into the gravy, gave it a mix and Voila !!~

    WOW, Delicious and very Flavorful, Succulent and Tasty, with the Parothas I picked from the Keralite Bothers who do a good job, just down the street, it really went well, as a combo.
