Kadhai Chicken is another one of those signature dishes at Indian restaurants. The Kadhai Chicken has a very unique flavor. The amazing part is that it is not a dish that is overloaded with spices, yet the few that are there just make this one fantastic dish. The flavor and the aroma of the fresh ground coriander seeds is simple yet amazing. A big thank you to Anita Krishnan for this great recipe.
