Chicken curry is such a popular dish among the world. In our house we regularly make chicken curry. It is not only a cheaper menu recipe wise, but it is very tasty. I have cooked chicken curry for my guests at various venues and establishments, and I can assure you it was always a winner. If you like another Indian type dinner recipe, Indian Butter Chicken is delicious. In this particular curry the coconut milk makes it very tasty, and it also improves blood pressure, and helps prevent cardiac arrhythmia due to its potassium content.It is packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. A good reason to make this delicious Indian chicken curry with saffron rice.
