Bombay style chicken curry is ohhhh so delish! I just love all the flavors in this dish. The warm aromatic spices just fill my heart with so much joy. It reminds me of the food my mom used to cook and the way we would wait for dinner to be ready while arguing with my sister over who had to set the table. The flavors in this dish are so inviting and unique and the nuts, coconut and turmeric have so many health benefits too.
