Easy Chicken Curry

Recipe of the week 🙂

This is a wonderful spicy chicken curry which is full of flavor. I made this recipe long back and thought it is one of the easiest recipes and I should post. This is pretty easy to make and tastes really good.

There is no marination needed or grinding any masala. I used Kashmiri chili so it gave a wonderful color and it was less spicy. I make different styles of chicken each time, I usually tend not to make the same recipe again and again. There are so many recipes to try. We have thousands of recipes to try in every cuisine.

This simple chicken curry goes well with plain rice, Jeera Rice, Ghee Rice or even with plain paratha.

So here you go, enjoy!!
