How to make Simple Chicken Curry for Chapathi
To make this simple chicken curry for chapathi, you don’t need any whole garam masalas, coconut, cashews, cream or tomatoes. This is just an onion, ginger-garlic and curd based chicken curry flavored with some garam masala powder and kasuri methi. Even I love a deseeded dry red chili in this. As the chili powder used here is the non-spicy one. If you are making this for children, you can skip this.
