I finally have a nice pic of my dish!
=) well, actually it was professionally taken by the photog for our magazine's indian recipe spread. The recipe provided by Chef Siva (of Baba's upcoming show Neengal Samaikalam) is pretty much a normal curry and masala, with a few changes. Frankly, i've tasted and made better curry but the potato is pretty good!Chicken Kalyani Curry
