Coconut Creamy Chicken Curry:

Last Sunday I tried Coconut creamy chicken curry, am pretty sure every one like it. The mild spiciness, creamy texture & juiciness of the chicken, melting in my mouth. The combination of bowl of rice & chicken curry. Wow!! heavenly dish.
Finally, I touched it with some ghee (clarified butter), which enhances the aroma & taste to the curry. Adding coconut milk, the base of the curry, helps liaison to the dish. Also your favorite meat / seafoods / vegetables can be added.
For vegetarians, chicken can substitute with paneer / channa, Tofu, Potatoes, Brinjal or Cauliflower.
