ABOUT Green Chicken Curry RECIPE

I added some coriander stalks along with the leaves for the gravy base. For more intense flavour, drop in a few kaffir lime leaves. This will give the dish a lingering aroma. It can be relished either with plain steamed rice, jeera rice, plain Biryani, naan, paratha or any Indian bread.

It was delicious & I added coconut for that extra gravy. You can also increase the other spices likewise.
