White Chicken Stew Recipe - Chicken Sodhi Recipe



One night i was wondering what to cook for dinner. I had some readymade roti on hand so decided to make something quick. I was in a mood for some chicken curry. but i was too lazy to take the pain of going through so many steps. I had some store bought coconut milk on hand, so immediately i made this simple chicken curry. It turned out just wonderful..
