Kadai Chicken

Kadai Chicken is a very famous non-veg delight in restaurants. This spicy & yummy North Indian recipe tastes juicy with distinct flavor of bell pepper. Kadai Chicken is more of a drier curry where the spices really cling onto the chicken. It tastes great with Indian Naan,  Roti,  Paratha and Chapati or even with plain rice. Making kadai chicken at home is really easy..!

The chicken in this dish is cooked in its own juices.The original recipe calls for cream but I used milk, milk is also a good substitute for cream.Then don’t forget to add capsicum because it gives a unique color and flavor to this dish. The real taste of this kadai chicken is freshly roasted and grounded masala powder.
