Chicken Gravy

Chicken Gravy recipe I have learnt from my sister, she have not entered kitchen still her marriage but now within 5 years she learned many recipes. She used to clear my doubts in some of the dishes. My dad will say Chicken Gravy prepared by her has a special taste. So I followed the same steps of her to this Chicken Gravy and my dad told it the same copy of her.. :-)

This type of Chicken Gravy goes well with Plain Rice, Chapati and Biryani.

Notes :
    Don't pour more water in coconut milk extraction. 
    For Ginger Garlic paste both should used same quantity. You can even add turmeric powder for a favor.   
    After adding coconut milk the spice level will be lowered so check taste before adding. If you want more spicy then add Chicken Masala more and leave to boil for 3 min in medium flame. 
    In step 7 stir continuously to avoid charring. 
   Use only small onion don't use big onion.
