Easiest Tasty Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry

As the name suggests, chicken curry is a curry dish that originates from the Indian subcontinent. Traditional curry is made up of an onion-garlic-ginger-tomato base sauce and flavored with a variety of aromatic spices. But India is a diverse country, therefore, every state has its way of preparing the dish. They have different spice blends that shape up this curry; some are mildly spiced while a few are the spicy one. Don't be spooked if you're not a spice lover. While there are a lot of warm ground spices that season the dish, this curry isn't spicy at all. This recipe comes together in under an hour and is an excellent way to add some versatility to your weeknight dinner arsenal. And it's primarily comprised of ingredients you probably already have on hand—chicken, onions, garlic, pantry spices and canned tomatoes. But if you are here for a perfectly spiced, quick and easy chicken curry, then this is the recipe for you. This recipe is a pure comfort food and a big hit in my family!You can have it with pathiri,chappathi,roti , naan, Basmathi Rice etc.. The aromas and flavors are a delight to the senses.
