Chicken Tomato Roast (Chicken Dry, Kerala style), pub-8807793439541123, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0


Chciken tomato roast

This is my Mother’s famous recipe. It’s so famous that my relatives invite her to make this curry for our family functions. It doesn’t have much gravy, but the chicken pieces are so well coated with masala that we keep aside rest all curries and finish it first 🙂 . Its little time-consuming but the steps are very simple. Try it out and bring this special curry to your table.
