It is really a tough job to incorporate chicken breasts with Indian style gravies. As the it may not blends well with the gravy. I find the thigh chicken portions are good for the Indian gravies rather than chicken breast. According to me, these type of recipes are best suitable to chicken breast for the Indian style food.

Coriander leaves have unique beautiful flavor, I say chicken and coriander leaves are like conjoined twins, inseparable. Whatever may be the chicken recipe, sprinkle some fresh coriander leaves to it and feel the difference. Mostly Indian non-vegetarian dishes ends up with sprinkling of fresh coriander leaves.
