Dry Pepper Chicken Masala !!!

Lovely Sunday, are you confused? what curry to make today? Don’t worry, here is mouth – watering recipe for you. Wow, pepper & chicken are one of the best combination, playing with these two ingredients gives a wonderful experience in my kitchen. The aroma of pepper makes this dish more flavorful & tasty. Finally I touched with fried cashew & ghee (clarified butter)

This is recipe goes well with steam rice, naan, paratha, burger stuff, tacos stuff, tortillas stuff, sandwich, salads etc.

Instead of chicken, you can try this recipe with mushroom, potato etc. for vegans.
