There are many type or kinds of curry chicken available in the world.Forget others countries.Let's talk about the curry chicken that we Malaysian loves to eat.We have Nyonya style curry chicken,India style curry chicken,Malay's style curry chicken and lastly Chinese style curry chicken.Mainly most of the ingredients are almost the same,it's just some style of cooking taste differently because the measurement or minor change in spices.This time I tweaked something slightly different from my usual curry chicken .I added chili powder more than curry powder.As you can see the color of the gravy was really red,look angry,right!! Don't be fool by the appearance!!Actually the appearance look spicy but it's not!! The taste of this curry chicken was mild and mellow.Mishu been eating this dish daily without bored!!
