Harya Chicken Masala

Harya Chicken Masala One of my good friends and neighbor's mom visited her last month. We had a great time during her visit. When ever she cooked something special, she used to send it in a big box for us too.. Really enjoyed her love and care.

She also gave me a handful of wonderful recipes.. I will be posting all her recipes in coming days. One such recipe is Harya Masala which means Green masala or pachai masala because of its color. She gave this recipe for mutton, whereas i prepared chicken gravy with that..

Thank you for the recipe amma!! Here is her first recipe..
