Chicken Curry recipe (Semi-gravy type) | Easy chicken curry using pressure cooker


Chicken curry recipe that I am posting today is semi-gravy i.e., it is neither gravy nor a dry curry but it is in between. This chicken curry can be had as a side dish for rice or roti. I made this chicken curry using pressure cooker. It is easy to make this flavorful chicken curry. 
I made this Chicken curry as a part of Virtual treat for our dear friend Sangee Vijay's Birthday. This is her mom's recipe and she has mentioned that it is her most favorite chicken recipe, so I wanted to try this semi dry chicken curry for her. It was so delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed this flavorful chicken curry.  
Happy Birthday, Sangee!!

You can serve this with Kodi Kura (Andhra style chicken curry) or with rasam and rice.

Rava Kichadi Recipe | Sooji Kichdi | South Indian Breakfast recipes

Rava Kichadi is a traditional South Indian Tiffin. It is made of Sooji/ semolina and has loads of vegetables. Rava Kichadi is one of my favorite. Even my hubby who is not a fan of Rava upma eats Rava kichadi without any complaints. What makes the difference between the upma and the kichadi is the addition of tomatoes, veggies, turmeric, ginger and ghee in the kichadi. I usually serve this Kichadi with coconut chutney. You can also serve it with sambar or you can eat it with pickle too. One of my friend likes to eat this kichadi with yogurt. Each has different preference right? But they cannot say no to this melt in the mouth yummy rava kichadi.
