C46 Chicken Kolhapuri

This is converted from a few traditional recipes from Kolhapur in the South Western Indian State of Maharashtra. It is adjusted for 1 portion, with some ingredient changes allowing it to be cooked in a BIR (British Indian Restaurant) rather than a traditional style. A delicious tasting curry.
