Creamy Masala Chicken

I had prepared this curry last month on my daughter Sanju’s birthday . This curry tasted good as simple as  it  was to cook . I paired the curry with white rice and chicken biryani which my mama (uncle) had shared with us from his factory function catered by ‘Pai caterers ‘ . So it was a grand feast for us . We had also prepared other dishes for the celebration .

Summer vacation is almost coming to an end and the cat race will start soon again . Past two months had turned me so lazy and there were never ending family functions which we feasted  to the core . So cooking at home was minimum . I will try to share the recipes whenever possible . So until then stay tuned for more recipes !
