Chicken Curry | Chicken in Onion Gravy Recipe

Chicken Curry in Onion Gravy or Onion Chicken curry is chicken cooked in onion paste and spices. This curry is very delicious and same time it's quite easy to prepare too. If you are bored of your routine chicken curry then you should try this, everyone loves this curry and I make this mostly for guests and they simply adore this recipe. 

This curry goes well with steamed rice, jeera rice, bagara bhaat, paratha, poori or even bread and it's perfect party recipe. This curry is on little spicy side so reduce chili powder quantity if you think you can't handle that much heat but I normally make non-veg dishes spicy and hot as it suppose to be in my mind. If you try this recipe then do give your feed back.
