Potato chicken curry/ Aloo chicken curry/Easy indian chicken recipes/ spicy south indian chicken gravy recipes/step by step pictures

This is a simple chicken curry which is combined with potato.After tasting this, I understood that the combination of potato and chicken is really awesome..Last two weeks back,i prepared this curry on sunday for lunch..Actually first I planned to cook some biryani,but was not prepared any thing about particular biriynai recipe in mind...So,using boneless chicken made some pulav and for rotis cooked this simple curry...You people know very well,that we couple don`t eat potatoes (if you are much familiar to MLH),but nowadays Iam also buying potatoes to try recipes...So,by using those as a combination tried this curry...It was vibrant in red color because of using tomato puree instead of fresh tomatoes and little bit tangy too..I don`t prefer store bought tomato puree tins in cooking,but after tasting this understood that purees also makes recipes fantastic,but it`s depended on qualtiy and brand too..,Finally,adding fresh cilantro leaves brings a nice flavor to the dish and it`s tasted good with rice too..If you are in hurry,or searching for simple chicken recipes,this one perfectly helps you,,Believe meJust go once..:)
