Goa Chicken Curry
This dish is a typical Goa Chicken Curry...Tender chickens is cooked in a spicy tangy spice paste..While frying onions and tomatoes,please make sure that the tomatoes gets mushy and completely disintegrated,this what gives the lovely saucy curry....This recipe is modified from “Anjum’s New Indian” cookbook..You could buy it here or here...I served this dish with Aromatic Rice pilaf...

Cloves / Krambu-4
Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Pepper-1 tsp
Tamarind-1 small lime size (I used 1 tblspn of store bought tamarind paste)
