Vishali's Recipe: Indian Chicken Curry

Indian Chicken Curry

Hi all,

This is a traditional Indian Chicken Curry recipe that is passed down to me from my mom.
Indian Chicken Curry can be served with steamed Rice, Bread, Dosa, Roti Jala , Naan
and Chapatti. I would be postng the recipes of the above mentioned accompaniments soon.
Do come back to view these recipes and enjoy.

I would be using mixed spices for this curry.
These spices can be purchased separately from food markets.
If you would like to purchase the pre mixed spices , try Asian orIndian Market.
Here is how the spices look like.
The same spices are used fo all Indian Meat Curries.

All the ingredients I used could be purchased online
