Capsicum Chicken Curry Recipe - Chicken with Bell Pepper Masala Recipe

Its been a while since i shared any chicken gravy recipe. This is the dish which i made for the get together and everyone loved it. They started asking me for the recipe. This is a easy recipe to make, you dont need much work at all. All the flavour for this comes from the bell peppers. I used green bell peppers and it added a nice flavour and aroma to this dish. The curry also was very creamy because we grinded those.
