Is it time consuming to make?

This recipe is perfect for times when you want a easy, quick, fuss free and hearty meal.

I would suggest you to take note of few things.

First and foremost, make it a point to marinate the chicken before hand so that all flavours are infused very well. Keep this covered in the fridge to use next day.

Prepare the gravy whenever you want, just add the marinated chicken into this, saute for a while, add water and pressure cook it.

Planning this way to serve this chicken curry for any party or get together or even for lazy weekend lunch would make the things much more easier.

Coming back to the recipe of homestyle chicken curry, I would suggest you, when in doubt always make this curry.
