A marination done with fresh coriander and mint leaves and curried into rich creamy gravy a chicken is sure to taste good. I was about to cook something else yesterday but suddenly I thought why not utilise the fresh coriander and mint and try this out to make chicken gravy. And I took a right decision . The aroma was classic and taste was good . The gravy added a bit of excitement on our dinning table. So to wrap up last nights dinner hers the recipe for Dhaniya chicken .
