Amritsari chicken masala curry recipe - This spicy chicken masala curry is prepared in the Northern part of India. This recipe is very useful to those who doesn't like to add coconut in chicken curry and want to make an easy, quick and tasty chicken dish for meal. It has an inviting aroma and the flavor itself makes you feel hungry. You can make it without much of an effort. Being a South Indian, I am used to make chicken curry with coconut and flavor it with roasted spices. This non-veg dish is not only fast to cook but also fun to make. While preparing this dish, I have used instant chicken masala and garam masala. But, you can change this to roasted spice powder you have and adjust the quantity of the ingredients to suit your palate. You can just experiment with the ingredients with basic idea of this recipe.
