    This is another chicken dish which is very popular in my house. This combination is just unbelievable. One can substitute the chicken for any kind of fish or Shrimps. You can eat it with rice, roti or even with dinner rolls. Gravy consistency can also be alter from soup like to stew like. One simple dish have so many variations to enjoy.

        Taste just like my Mother-in-law's chicken who lives in India. My girls loved it and they don't love spice.
