Usually we are making different types of chicken curry in houses. We have tasted different types of tasty dishes from relative's houses or some other functions or celebrations. We will get the tendency to have some chicken curries when we see it because of its colour or smell. However chicken dishes became a favourite item for everyone including me. Chicken dishes are the main dishes among non- vegetarian dishes. 

Today, I made chicken curry in roasted coconut, red chilli and coriander seeds masala. It is very tasty and traditional curry. Only we are taking more time to roast it together apart from that every process is easy. Roasted masala curries are really tasty and it has a very good flavour. In hotels, they are serving this type of curries are very special dishes. Garam masala powder and fennel seeds are helping to increase its taste. It is very spicy dish and it can use as the side dish with appam, rice and chapati for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is very special to serve guests.
