I just made this and it's great! I've been looking for a recipe like this that's fairly easy to do. I'm from US living in Pakistan with my husband who is Pakistani so have been trying to learn recipes from here :D and thanks for the information on the cinammon. I was thinking about what we have in the US and you're right it's very different from what is used here and in India!

I am a student and your recipe has been a great help during the winter flue season. Nothing beats chicken yakni in winters.
