Grilled Kashmiri Chicken Curry

              Kashmiri chicken curry is a mild spicy, sour, creamy and rich dish. It is one of the best chicken item which I personally like to serve with nun or any type Indian Bread. It can also be served with rice items like pulao or simply with steam rice.
I think it is best fitted for our online event “Kashmir to Kanyakumari” and it for all Kolkata Food Bloggers.
        Here I twisted a little bit to try something different and want to please my family ,friends and followers. Basically dry fruits are cooked with curd and tomato gravy, that produce a nice creamy gravy and the dry masala added to it gives a nice aroma over it.
Here I use onion in two times and in two different ways. Since the gravy is made with many of the sour ingredients (curd, tomato and vinegar),I use sugar but can be skip for those who like sour taste. Try this delicious and waiting for your feedback…
