Chicken curry as food is one of the favorite dishes on Sunday for me and my family. I am sure many more families have craving for it just like mine. My both kids love this dish served with rice. One can even eat with bread or roti. It is hot and fragrant and is made with roasted spice. Most people love eating Chicken curry for lunch or dinner. 1 kg chicken contains 27 g of protein, vitamin B and maintains healthy cells in the body. It contains minerals and low in cholesterol. It is healthy, good and full of taste.
