Chicken Dal Recipe - Chicken Dal Curry Recipe

Oneday i visited one of my close friends place. We had such a great time and for lunch she made ghee rice and dal curry. I was surprised to see that combo, she told me that her mum always makes dal curry with ghee rice. When i tasted it, it was delicious. So yummy..

I took the inspiration from that, few days later i asked hubby to get chicken. I decided to make ghee rice and dal, at that moment i thought why not add chicken to dal. I created my own recipe and when i made it i loved the flavour a lot and it went so well with ghee rice. More over my lil one loved it to the core..

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