For last 3-4 days it was too much busy . So Cooking became a side part of my life . But on Saturday I made this easy chicken curry for our lunch . That was my birthday so we went for dinner with some of our close friends .
Though in my house we both like mutton most but due to the health consciousness we normally make chicken . It is very simple recipe to make but really delicious .
Now here is the recipe :-

7. 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
8. salt to taste
9. 3 tsp Oil
