1/1 Photo of Country Style Chicken Curry With Dhal
Brian Holley's Note:
This simple country style recipe was sent to me by an Indian friend. The use of a pressure cooker cuts the cooking time, so the whole dish is finished in under half an hour. You won't find this food in an Indian restaurant, as it is very authentic. Tastey, serve with plain boiled rice.
