YUMMY CHICKEN GRAVY - FRIED CHICKEN SIMMERED IN SPICY GRAVY

SPICY CREAMY CHICKEN CURRY RECIPE

Today am here sharing with you a typical South Asian chicken curry recipe with a small twist. Here marinated and shallow fried chicken pieces are simmered in onion and tomato based gravy which is flavored with different spices and thick cream. Yes, every country has its own different varieties in chicken curry recipe and all of them tastes unique in taste and texture. The versatility in Indian curry recipes is the one which I love the most in Indian cuisine. My hubby often says, cooking yummy simple chicken curry is a skill. The highlight of this chicken curry is the shallow fried succulent fried chicken pieces. Usually, for onion-tomato based curry recipes, chicken is added directly with any marination itself. Here chicken is well marinated, shallow fried and then simmered in a tangy creamy spicy gravy that adds flavor and texture to this curry. This spicy chicken curry tastes well with ghee rice, chapati, paratha etc. Though it is simple to dish out chicken curry within minutes, you must be carefully careless in some stages so that your family will be bowled over by its yummy taste.
