Chicken Masala Dry

Chicken Masala Dry, this is an easy and simple chicken recipe made with the basic onion tomato masala. As I have already mentioned in my earlier post, my husband mostly prefer dry gravies in non-vegetarian items. So I made this masala little dry. If you like it with gravy, you can add more onion and tomatoes. This masala goes well with rice as well as chapati, roti etc.
