Saucy Tomato Chicken

PinTo relieve my little brain on how to start my post today, I will share with you this quote, which is just so apt and meaningful…Β Pin


I have already, so many time, indicated how non-veg mad our family is. Anytime it is chicken, mutton or beef in the making, you will see some happy faces all around. However, when it is vegetables or lentils, then you can conveniently forget the feeling of seeing blissful expressions! Whenever it is non-veg in the house, I look for options to keep trying different varieties of curries so that our taste buds don’t really get saturated with the same tastes every time. One curry that I really enjoyed making and eating was this really saucy chicken curry with the tanginess of tomatoes in it. Nothing extraordinary, just a variation from our normal chicken curry, with loads and loads of tomatoes in it… Perhaps the best time to try it out is now when the prices of tomatoes are almost rock bottom, hehe… Off to the recipe…
