ABOUT Curry Leaves Chicken Curry RECIPE

I was always one fussy kid when it was about eating greens, especially on days when I was down with a bad health. And like every other mom, Maa would also try all tricks up her sleeves to make her child eat something nutritious food for a speedy recovery. This is one such recipe that my mom would always make when I have cold and fever and now that I am grown up and I stay away from home, words fall short to describe how much I miss this recipe of Maa.
