Chicken masala is a traditional Indian dish which is simple to make and easy on the palette. There are several variants of it but our personal favourite definitely has to be the creamy masala curry. Everything turns better with the addition of some cream and this masala chicken curry is no different. The perfect balance of spices and cream makes this curry the ultimate chicken dish. Serve it up with some hot rice for a perfect meal.
