An easy recipe of Kadai chicken

Kadai chicken is  popular recipe in Northern parts of India. Today being the 1st day of the year 2018, I planned to cook something tasty for dinner. The lunch had been too simple today as yesterday was a roof – top picnic day for us with bon-fire! So the dinner was a late one and a heavy one as well. But for new year, how could I go without serving something nice for my family. So after shopping for groceries and other needful, I went ahead with an easy chicken preparation in a kadai in an indigenous manner. And I called it Kadai chicken – my way.
