Spicy Chicken Curry

This is one of my versatile and easiest recipe which goes really well with anything.I learnt cooking these type chicken curries from my in laws were they cook without adding any fat like coconut milk,milk or yogurt, even they far not add any whole spices in theirs chicken curries.May thats the way Sri Lankan cook,I think???..

My mum use coconut milk mostly in her chicken curries.I love those type very much but rarely makes hers recipe here coz my better half not so keen on adding milk and its difficult to feed him chicken.He is quickly lost his appetite if the chicken pale color(white color even after cooked),so I always put more effort to form  the chicken in good color.I tends add good quality chili powder and cook on low flame to get those kinda of rich colour and for the first time I used  kashmiri chili powder and its worked so well. He loves.

We always love to pair it with puttu and rotis.Its immensely taste too delicious.
