  1. Hi, What is the role of yogurt in this recipe? Could you please inform me if yogurt are not added, there might be great change in taste?

  2. Hi Kaiser,
    Yogurt are used to give the thickness in the gravy and it also gives tenderness to the meat. In my experience it will change the taste of dish and the gravy will not as much tick as it should be.
    Thank you.
