Curry Leaves Chicken Fry | Curry Leaf Chicken 

Posted by

The first time I saw this recipe on the internet, It looked delicious and since then I was drooling over this chicken dish.Though I love the flavor of curry leaf, I only use curry leaves for tadka because I am still not familiar with the uses of curry leaves other than using in tadka and chutney. But now onwards I know what to make when I buy a bunch of curry leaves. This curry leaf chicken recipe is fully packed with flavors and this recipe is an absolute keeper.
Though this recipe is great to serve as a side dish or to serve with chapati. But I love to have it without rice/chapati. I never thought I would come across something so yummy to serve as a starter which is made with curry leaves. 😀
