      1. Hi, yes if you don't cook your chicken and if you don't allow your curry to thicken it will remain as in stepwise picture. Please go through the instructions carefully the next step clearly mentions you to cook further - "Cook on a low flame until the curry thickens and chicken gets cooked and tender" So that is not the final picture and the light I have in my kitchen is just a tube light, While I shoot the final pictures in natural light, that makes the color difference! Thank you hope you are clear by now!!!!
