About Lemony & Peppery Green Chicken Curry Recipe

Want to have a light chicken curry for dinner? Then here is this delicious lemony and peppery flavoured dish just for you. I went a little low on the spice level, but it can be adjusted accordingly. Increase the quantity of pepper or green chilies if you want it to be spicy and make it a soup like consistency if desired. 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.
