When oil appears to have separated and gravy tends to stick to the bottom of the pot, add chicken, DON'T ADD WATER and cook with lid on the pot and at a low heat
As there is no water added so it may stick to the bottom of the pot, so check it and stir it once or twice after adding chicken
Now when you see that it is completely roasted, water has evaporated,chicken is tender, gravy is sticking to the bottom and oil appears to have separated, add yogurt, mix and cook covered
Cook until it gives look of qormah, oil separates
