Thanks a lot for trying out my recipes, Nancy :) Great to hear that you like them.

Tried this at home last night, easy to make, clear instructions . Only comment is that it was quite spicy, was fine for me, but you may need to cut down on the chilli if you don't like it too hot. However was very good, full of authentic flavours, thanks for sharing

I don't see green chilly in the ingredient list but it's there in the preparation section.. how many green chilly did you use

Thanks for pointing it out. I have updated the recipe with green chilli. Hope you enjoy the curry :slight_smile:

Motherly nadan chicken curry! It was finger licking yummy

Thanks a lot Aparna :slight_smile:

Hi, can u pls recommend a veg substitute for the chicken. Would really love to try this recipe.

Try out with paneer. Lemme know how it turns out :slight_smile: Paneer gets cooked faster. So cook it until paneer is done. According to the quantity of paneer, adjust spices in the recipe.
