Notes

I love ethnic food because its my little way of traveling the globe. So tonight I was craving some Indian flavors and decided to make Chicken Curry (also known as Murgh Masala). A Pubjabi speciality from North India, this chicken curry is fragrant with cumin and cilantro.

Here is my recipe for Murgh Masala.

* I served this over couscous cooked in chicken broth with chopped cilantro.
