Friday night we both wanted to go out for dinner but suddenly the weather became so bad and heavy rain started, No other way we have to drop our plan. But really wanted to eat something good, what else I had to cook, so around 9.30 I started cooking without any plan, and made a nice spicy chicken curry, after having our dinner my husband asked me what the name of this dish. Even I am also thinking what to call that, and finally I decided one name’ Tikhi Murg Curry’. How about the name? I just love the name. Because the chicken curry was quite Spicy and Hot.
