Kori Ghassi…

is a (popular) Mangalorian chicken curry. what made me try this dish was its key ingredient – COCONUT. It is made in coconut oil, has coconut paste in it and in the end you stir in coconut milk (that’s three much of coconut).And if you want to try a recipe that does not shout out for garam masala and is still a tasty gravy, then you must try this for sure… so here is the recipe.
