Sukha Chicken (Dry Chicken Curry)


I always try new recipes on chicken because it is my family's favourite. Last Friday 'he' wanted to eat any dry preparation at dinner and told me 1 and half hour ago from dinner time. As I had not much time in hand, so, I thought how about marinate everything with chicken pieces and cook it. It took very less time and the taste turned out phenomenal. Believe me the end result was beyond my imagination. You have to try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out.
