With the cooking and planning for the Indian States, occupying most of my thoughts, it was quite hard to cook anything new or even new for this space. Well no excuses, I wanted to simply do something new today, and not just keep on the Menus that I have been doing it lately.
Anyway one might wonder what's new with this chicken curry, the recipe is shared by my aunt. Amma made it without coconut, and though she doesn't eat, said everybody loved it. So the entire credit for today's post goes to Amma for cooking it and Konda for clicking it. I have been telling them that I haven't posted any non veg dishes offlate, so remembering that in mind, when she made a new version of the same old chicken gravy, Amma thought she would ask Konda to click pictures.
When I was asking Amma for the recipe, I was surprised to notice that it's made without coconut and to get more gravy, extra coriander powder is added and for the amount of gravy you want, you simply add that amount of water and adjust spice and simmer to cook to get a good gravy.
This is surely so good on the cholesterol front
