Editors Review

If you have been trying Indian chicken curries for a long time, here is a slightly different recipe to bowl you over once again. Try this kadhai chicken recipe, which is not actually a curry as it's dry and more tomatoes. When you have very less time to cook something nice for you or your family or any guests, this recipe would fit the bill. A few stirs in the wok would give you this delicious chicken dish.
