  2. Soak the bread in the lowfat milk. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the onions and saute/fry till soft and golden brown, about 10 min. Add in the garlic and cumin and saute/fry for 1 more minute. Add in softened bread and aji or possibly chile pwdr, and cook for about 1 minute, stirring. (For a creamier sauce, place onion-bread mix in a blender, puree till smooth and return to skillet.) Add in 2 c. of the chicken stock and continue cooking till sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon, about 5 min.
  3. Add in the chicken and simmer for 5 to 8 more min, adding more stock if needed. Stir in the walnuts and Parmesan cheese, and simmer gently for another 5 min, or possibly till thickened slightly. To serve, spoon chicken and sauce onto a serving platter and surround with potatoes and Large eggs. Sprinkle with minced parsley.
