This chicken curry belongs to the category of 'dhaba food'. The gravy is very popular in Punjab and all over India. You can also make this dish with paneer or vegetables. The white, creamy texture of the gravy and beautiful aroma of fenugreek leaves will take you to heaven. I used boneless chicken for this recipe, feel free to make it with chicken on bone, it will be no issue. You can pair this dish with plain chapatis, tandoori rotis or butter naan. Every pair will make your tummy happy. Try this easy recipe in your kitchen and enjoy a perfect dinner with your family.
