|Aloo Chicken Curry|
This curry is a basic chicken dish with potatoes in it.I love potatoes so much,and these simple potatoes becomes super delicious when they get cooked in yummy chicken curry..This is a typical south indian dish that goes perfectly well with rice.I added coconut paste to make this dish creamy,But if you are cooking this for parties you could add some soaked cashews to the coconut and grind it together,this will make this dish more rich.This dish is so tasty because you don’t add any additional water to this,the chicken and the potatoes are cooked in there own juices...I know most of you will make some chicken dish on Sundays and now you know what you should make this Sunday..(he he).So try this and let me know what you think...
