Recipe by jazzypriti

I know there are millions of chicken curry recipes, and they differ from home to home. This is a Fresca, Saucy, Chicken Curry to be served with white rice, or Basmati Rice. I grew up off of this very recipe, and omitting the butter, it is a healthy dish. You will love it!

I love Indian food and am glad I found this recipe. I always measure everything into it's individual dishes the day before. I make the recipe exactly as stated except I use the 29 oz can of tomato sauce. All the flavors are just as flavorful with the larger amount of tomato sauce. I like mine a little more soupy. Five stars on this one!
