Hi friends, today I am going to share a quick, and delicious recipe of Punjabi Chicken curry. Punjabi chicken curry is a spicy and flavourful chicken delicacy. It is easy to prepare and can be cooked in less than half an hour. Here I have used pressure cooker to reduce cooking time. This curry tastes great with pulaonaan, plain rice, idiyappam, dosa, idlis or even Chapathi and Rotis.

This chicken curry recipe is my go-to recipe when I am short of time and wish to make something really delicious. I usually serve this lip smacking Punjabi chicken curry with Pulao or Ghee rice.

Now let's head on to the recipe of making Punjabi Chicken Curry/ Punjabi Chicken Masala
