Instructions
For Chicken Marination & gravy
  1. Clean chicken breasts with running water and wipe with a clean kitchen towel. I have used chicken cutlet available in super markets which is already cut appropriately. In case you don't get the chicken cutlet ready made, take one piece of chicken breast and slice it along the long edge and let it remain attached on the other long edge. It would open like a butterfly shape. In a mixing bowl, add chicken, black pepper powder, dried thyme, salt and lemon juice. Rub the spices around the chicken. Place the chicken in to zip lock bag and tap it with rolling pin all over. Refrigerate the chicken for at least 2 hours. You could also marinate and leave it overnight a day before for good the result.
  2. To make tomato sauce, heat oil in a kadhai/deep pan at medium heat, add cumin seeds and bay leaves. Once cumin seeds gets brown add mace, green cardamom, cinnamon stick, cloves in to it and saute it for few seconds. Add ginger & garlic and saute it for 30 sec till garlic gets golden brown. Add tomato, turmeric powder, kashmiri red chili, beetroot and salt. Saute until tomato gets mushy.
  3. Add cashew nut and cook for 1 minute. Once its done, turn off the heat. Let it cool down.
  4. Grind the tomato gravy in a grinder and make a nice paste. Add little water if needed while grinding. Strain the puree using big strainer in to same kadhai which we used for making gravy. Add coriander & cumin powder, kasoori methi and honey and stir it nicely. Add 1/4 cup water. Let it cook for 2 minutes more.
  5. Gravy should be of medium consistency. Add heavy whipping cream and stir it nicely. Turn off the heat. Keep it covered for about 5-6 minutes and then transfer it in to a bowl and keep it aside. Tomato gravy is ready.
For Filling
  1. Heat oil in a pan at medium heat. Add garlic and saute till golden color. Add chopped spinach, mushroom and salt.
