Chicken Masala Curry



Chicken Masala Curry is a popular Indian dish made with chicken, spices, and a tomato-based sauce. The dish is usually served with rice or roti. The chicken is marinated in a mixture of spices, including turmeric, cumin, coriander, garam masala, and chili powder. The sauce is made with onions, garlic, ginger, and tomatoes, and is often flavored with garam masala, cumin, and coriander. The dish is usually cooked in a clay pot or a pressure cooker to ensure that the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thick and flavorful. The dish is often garnished with fresh cilantro.
