This chicken curry can be prepared with very few ingredients in a hurry without compromising on the taste. Goes well with any Indian bread.
Who wouldn’t love to enjoy readymade dinner made by dear hubby on lazy weekends, when you just want to sit and do nothing. People say that men are great cooks and it’s true. They are. It’s just that you have to let them do whatever they want to do in kitchen. Just don’t interfere. I never knew that my hubby is a great cook until few day’s back found out about this hidden talent in him. He never goes in kitchen , may be because I don’t allow , thinking that he will make a mess and then I would have to cleanup later.
But the other day I was feeling so lazy to cook and told him why don’t you make something for me , but I won’t help you and you will have to manage cleaning up my kitchen too. He agreed and prepared this wonderful chicken . Of course it took him long to prepare and clean up later because , this is only his 3rd time making something in kitchen after 14 years of marriage. But , he impressed me with his surprisingly mind blowing chicken curry. And when I asked him about the recipe, to my astonishment, he didn’t use any coconut it it , plus no garam masala. It was just plain chicken gravy yet very flavorful.
For thanksgiving I stole his recipe and made this wonderful easy chicken curry. But I must admit that I loved his curry more then mine, though the ingredients and method was the same. But he said that it tasted the same. May it’s some kind off psychology in my head. 🙂 . This curry is you can say bachelor’s style because, no need for extra efforts. cook with very few ingredients. Even if you add extra garlic or ginger, it will enhance the flavor even more rather then making it bland.
