Manpasand Chicken

I was searching for a different chicken dish as i dont want to make the usual chicken curry for our sunday's special lunch.. While going through Srivalli's Cooking 4 All Seasons i got hooked to this manpasand chicken as this chicken dish was quite different from wat we usually prepare, while going through the recipe i was quite surprised to see the addition of poppy seed powder and cashew powder which sounds truly interesting for me..I dont want to miss to cook up this delicious chicken curry and tried out making today for our sunday lunch...Thanks a lot to Srivalli for sharing this yummy chicken manpasand and everyone at home relished this chicken curry..This curry goes fabulous along with rasam..

2nos Tomatoes
