Chicken Bhuna Masala

Star Rating WIDGET PACK

Chicken curry is almost regular in my kitchen and that's why I always try to do some twists with the masala, otherwise who will eat same chicken curry regularly? Nobody ! This time I made the twist with dry spices. Generally whole garam masala is used in this type of curry but I decided to go for a change and surprisingly I got the perfect taste. 'Bhuna' means koshano / in low flame you have to cook something with spices for long time. The curry is very aromatic itself and goes very well with some steamed rice or naan. I will make this dish soon again, until then what are you waiting for?
