This is one of the easiest and simplest curry that one could make. It’s filled with flavours and heart-filling aroma. If you have pre-cooked chicken tikka in your freezer and if you have some sudden guests for dinner, this dish is a breeze to make. I clicked the pics in a hurry burry. Didn’t have time for even a simple garnish. Next time when I will make this, I will try to get a decent pic 😉
