Punjabi Chicken Curry

Dhaba (Road-side Restaurants) is similar to our road side idli kadai. I have always been a big fan of Punjabi Dhaba style foods. Dhaba Style Chicken Curry is easy to prepare and requires all common ingredients which we use in daily basis.The most important ingredients are garam masala which the punjabis used to prepare. The punjabi garam masala is different from other garam masala. In this recipe i used punjabi garam masala to bring exactly the punjabi chicken curry taste.
