Chicken in Tomato Gravy Recipe


This is a simple tomato based chicken curry..It is so easy to make..You dont have to chop lots of onions for this, it is purely a tomato based curry. I made a spiced tomato puree and cooked seared chicken in this...It tasted so yummy. I served it with parota..But it goes extremely well with pulav, naan as well..


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