Spicy Indian Red Chicken Curry Recipe

I saw this recipe on youtube and instantly loved it. It is a simple recipe, you just need few basic ingredients but the taste is truly mouth watering. Moreover the colour of this curry is very appetizing.

I also made a simple tawa chicken to go with this recipe, will share it soon. The main flavouring of this is yogurt and the masala which we grind. I used kashmiri chilli so it gave a wonderful colour and it was less spicy.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

  18. Hello Krishna, we love Indian food and go often to The Bombay Spice Rest in Hengelo Ov The Netherlands. We like to trie to make it selves. Sometimes it will be very good. Today we tried this recipe and I think we did something wrong. The taste was not so smooth and rich we like. The color was more Brown than Red. We made it whit chicken. You have a nice smooth and thick Garlic and Chile mix. We had it nearly wiht-blanc with some red. We will do it again on a other time.
