#rhomesecrets: Chicken Kari Gravy ( A Traditional Bohri Chicken Curry)

This is a pure Bohri dish. I have learnt it from my mother and I like this dish as it is very tasty and a good blend with rice or tandoori roti. Cooking tip for this dish – keep stirring the Kari powder till we add the coconut milk.
