Spicy Chicken Gravy

I tried out different sort of gravies with chicken, but our favourite is always this tomato based chicken gravy..This gravy was our sunday's special lunch.I prepared Ghee rice n spicy chicken gravy together, they both goes awesome together, nothing will beat the taste of this gravy..i follow somewat my mom's method of preparing this delicious gravy with slight changes according to my taste buds..she used to use redchilly powder, but i used dry red chillies grounded with handful of wonderful spices n fresh tomatoes...This delicious chicken gravy goes fabulously with parathas, rotis also with south Indian breakfasts..when we were kids, my mom used to make 100%mutton r chicken sunday, she used to prepare the breakfast, lunch n dinner with chicken r with mutton as sunday specials, i still remember that we used to wait since early morning to have the chicken r mutton stuffed idlies, my all time favourite and Briyanis for afternoon..the list goes long, just missing all those wonderful days..My H loves any dishes with chicken and this spicy chicken gravy was one of his most favourite gravy, so am dedicating this yummy gravy to him, this gravy goes to FIL-Tomato by Sanghi's Food Delights n also to Think Spice -Think Pepper guest hosted by Divya of Dil Se, event by Sunitha..
