Green chicken curry

I really feel the name of this chicken curry could be little better, as it does no justice to the simplicity and taste of this curry.

The recipe ingredients are very simple yet the outcome is very rich. The chicken is marinated with all spices and then slow cooked with yoghurt and fresh herbs.

If your serving this chicken curry to guests it’s always better to prepare a day before as it taste better the next day
