Easy Indian Chicken Curry

Ruma Chak


India loves curries and so do I. There are numerous ways to prepare curries with the same ingredients. E.g. There can be not less than 40-50 ways to prepare Chicken curries or Fish curries or any vegetarian curries. I prepared chicken curry today which I would like to share.

[Note: I have used potato in the curry which is optional]
