Chicken Masala is prepared in  many different ways across  India. This is one of my version which is simple, less time taking as well as less oil and spices. In whole a healthy version in less time. Hope this recipe will helps foodies those who want to save some time from cooking and really helpful for beginners too!.

In restaurant and many people use yogurt, cream, poppy seeds, coconut milk, cashews..etc to give the recipe a rich taste. I have came with very simple, healthy and home style recipe which is as tasty and delicious as  restaurant.
