This is one of my favorite chicken curries from my grandmother’s kitchen. It uses minimum oil, fresh ingredients and is delicious over rice or with Naan. It takes less than 30 minutes from preparation to dinner table.

  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), diced

  Fresh ginger 2 Teaspoon, chopped
  Boneless, skinless, chicken breasts 1 1⁄2 Pound, cubed

  Green pepper 1 Large, sliced
