HOT & SPICY CHICKEN GRAVY
Just to share with you....
This chicken gravy is little bit different from my ordinary chicken gravy . I use whole peppers for this gravy to make it really hot and spicy with other spices. One day I made my ordinary chicken gravy and I found Gravy was less when compared to the chicken quantity so I thought to adding Grinded coconut because in south India for making chicken kolumu at the same time I don't want to lose the chilli/hotness so I added whole peppers along with coconut while grinding and it turned out good.
