How would a restaurant menu describe Indian Chicken Curry – Murg Masala? As a succulent and spicy chicken legs cooked in onion, tomatoes and almond gravy. We would describe it as absolutely delicious and gorgeous. Everybody loves a good curry and if you want to impress your family and friends then this is the recipe. Don’t be put off by the number of ingredients, once you have purchased them, you can create hundreds of other recipes. Served on a bed of freshly cooked piping hot rice for a simple but highly delightful dish. I have also served it with Naan BreadAloo Gobi and Chana Dal. This is a gorgeous main meal for four to six people every time.
