Inessa, the creamy chicken looks very appetizing. Traditionally, Indians don’t use flour to thicken.But its a good idea for easy and quick recipe.
Hi, as an alternative to flour you can use coconut milk, or cashew paste (grind few cashews) or thick fresh cream. One of them should work. If you still want to use flour use corn flour that you use for chinese dishes.
