Chicken Keema Curry

In our Christmas & New Year special I am sharing recipe of Chicken Keema Curry. Chicken Keema Curry is basically minced chicken made with herbs and spices and you can either have it like that or like in this recipe I have added pieces of chicken to add more flavors and make it a complete dish.
