Yesterday, I made this chicken curry for lunch and it turned out to be delicious.  It is a simple chicken curry recipe which uses only basic spices. What I liked in making this recipe is that it does not require any marination and can be prepared in flat 30 minutes. Also it goes well with anything, be it any flat bread like roti, naan, kulcha or any rice variety like zeera rice, pulaos, etc.
