Spicy Indian Chicken Curry

                        Always wish to try and give a new taste to our normal chicken curries.. Just passed through this recipe posted by one of the members 'Princy Eby' of  'Ammachiyude Adukkala'(a famous group in facebook). Her picture also was perfect to make us feel to try out this dish. I think even the preparation was interesting as there were many steps to be incorporated together. Do each thing differently and just add it together and cook for sometime. It is an easy process.

                       However the process is, the flavor was just amazing. Even while I was cooking, it I felt sure about the taste as the aroma had that guarantee ! The freshness of  garam masala, the pureed tomatoes & the semi fried chickens which were just so adorable. Do take the same amount of all ingredients please. Let's see how it goes..

                       For a party night, do prepare this different chicken curry and make them ask you the recipe. You will feel delighted ... I know that feeling ... So who wants my favorite leg piece..?
