Kolhapuri Chicken Curry

Spicy, Hot, Exotic Kolhapuri chicken, goes well with rice, roti, jwarichi bhakari or naan! The recipe is made using Kolhapuri masala also called Goda masala. Kolhapuri masala is the base for most Maharashtrian curries and dals. I have added mint paste at last just to minimize the spiciness in gravy. You can add tomato puree to add some tangy flavor or you can skip it, I have added tomato puree in this recipe. The flavour of this dish matures with time. When u make it for lunch time, and while you have it at dinner the taste is still more yummmm!!! :) Kolhapuri chicken is made dry and also in curry form. You can also use the Kolhapuri masala for making veg recipes.
