Everybody must be aware of the famous Hyderabadi Cuisine and the rich flavor of spices in its recipes. Hyderabadi Chicken Curry Recipe is one of them. When I tried Hyderabadi Chicken Curry in my nearby restaurant, I just fell in love with its nice aroma of blends and spices. Here Chicken is cooked in the wholesome flavors of Mint Leaves, Coconut, Ghee, Fresh Yogurt and Spices.
Weekdays seriously makes me go nuts. Having a hungry husband and skipping breakfast has become a norm in my home. I know its not at all healthy but we end up waking late and hence rush to do lunch. My husband loves and awaits to have a hot home cooked meal in weekdays, since he likes Chicken Dishes a lot, so I try to cook something interesting for him. Last week I was on the lookout for a traditional and yet home cooked chicken curry and to my surprise I got an idea of making this Hyderbabadi Chicken Curry at home.
Needless to say that Hyderabadi cuisine is known for its rich flavors and spicy dishes. I’ve dished out few other Hyderabadi Recipes like the Hyderabadi Mutton Biryani, Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani, Hyderabadi Paneer, but this one has been much interesting recipe for me.
Although being a good home cook, you always want to do something that’s your own, its not a bad idea to try different recipes, you’ll be surprised to see the comments from your family. Like my husband after finishing his meal, said that, “Nowadays I don’t feel like having chicken outside, because my wife cooks the best chicken curry, why would I?” Now tell me which wife would not love to hear this :-). So this is the reason and excitement behind this curry. I have taken all the pictures while cooking it and trust me they all are drool-worthy. Try this curry for yourself and you will keep making it quite often. For complete list of ingredients and step by step instructions, please refer to recipe snippet below.
