Ummachi’s Spicy and Tasty Chicken Curry

Its been so many days since I updated my blog since I am out on a tour.

This recipe looks like an usual Kerala style chicken curry, but it is the most tastiest curry which I have always loved. This is my Mom’s style of chicken curry, which is rich in gravy and one of the  most tastiest curries that my Mom makes. This is loved by all at my home.

This time when I was at home in Kerala, my Mom made this again and I quickly took some shots before it got over. I have tried it as mentioned in this recipe, but nothing can beat Mom’s food.
I call my Mom as Ummachi, and as this is how she makes chicken curry I have given the name of this curry as “Ummachi’s chicken curry” :-)

Just try it out, I am sure you all will like it.
