This is a very easy chicken gravy that you can make within 30mins and it goes well with both rice and rotis.Both hubby and mittu are not fond of nonveg dishes....I like to eat occasionally so the demand for cooking nonveg dishes is absolutely nil at home..... So am trying to cook nonveg dishes atleast to post here , let me see how it works :) I made this chicken gravy for today's lunch,this is ammas method but modified a bit and it came out soo good that couldn't wait to share it so here I am with the recipe.Also everyone at home is dozzing off , bored to sit and watch TV so thought to share this recipe, so here is the chicken gravy hot from my kitchen :)
