A new post for spicy chicken lovers...my Spicy Chicken Curry!
This chicken curry is an absolute delight to all chicken lovers...as its quick and yumm!

We are a complete carnivore's...we love fish and chicken! We can eat fish and chicken for breakfast,lunch and dinner.
Somehow, I have to make sure that food is always fragrant and yummy...also it should not be monotonous.
So, I have to come up everyday with some recipe to suit everyone's taste and consume all the groceries too.

This time I made this quick and delicious chicken gravy...which is easy and yummy to eat.
It will make others wonder that you must have done so much masala grinding to make it taste better but it's super simple and easy to make!

I made this gravy along with Pav/Bread...do try my recipe of kadak Goan Pav/Une!

  • If you want the gravy to be more spicy then add red chilies when grinding masala or more red chili powder.
  • You can make it more spicy by increasing the quantity of malvani masala too.
  • Try my recipe of Malvani Masala.
  • If you cannot find malvani masala then add little kitchen king masala along with chicken curry masala. These are readily available in MDH or Everest Brand too.
