Malabar Chicken Curry And an Award!!!

Another super recipe from my mom - The Malabar Chicken Curry. She prepares this whenever we have some special guests and serves it always with her special Ghee Rice. Yummy!!This is my favorite chicken recipe as well. The one that I always want to prepare when I buy chicken. Whenever we go home, my hubby ask my mom to prepare it for him. He likes that extra taste of the chicken when it is prepared out of the 'Kal Chatti' (Stone cooking pot). These days, he says the chicken is becoming tasty like when my mom prepares it. :-) So hope you will also love it...Give it a try...
