Pepper Coriander Chicken | Green Chicken curry

Coriander chicken is a semi-thick gravy made with freshly prepared masala of coriander leaves, green chili. To make it richer and creamier I used some soaked cashews which enhanced the taste and flavor. There is definitely a difference in taste when the masalas are freshly prepared. Go ahead and try this and I'm damn sure you will love it. We paired it with fried rice. You can also serve it for Indian flatbread, appam, idiyappam or any rice variety.
