Kalmi Curd Chicken

I am back with my favourite thing – Chicken J and the best part about this recipe is that I haven’t used even one spoon of oil so here’s a healthy oil free chicken recipe for all the weight and health conscious people. The spices are really mild in this chicken because it is made in curd and curd helps to cut down the spice so even kids love this chicken.  Next time you want to try making chicken without using oil do try this recipe and I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
