I am always in search of new ways to make my chicken recipes tasty. This recipe for chicken tastes better than it looks. Chicken and tomato recipes with ripe tomatoes are something special for a weekend dinner during summer. The inspiration behind this recipe is quite interesting. I used to peep into the refrigerator for easy breakfast ideas on weekends. That day,  I found some leftover chicken and tomato curry in my refrigerator. As weekends are a lazy day for every moms and wife, me too just mixed those leftovers together and turned into a new dish for serving with dosa. That was an excellent twist which leads me to try this recipe. Hope you will enjoy this spicy chicken curry recipe. Here is the recipe showing how to make spicy tomato chicken.
