Chicken Peratal ( Dry Chicken Curry )

A chicken dish again! LOL...

This time it's my style Chicken Peratal ( Dry chicken curry ). If you add more water or coconut milk to this dish, it becomes Chicken curry :)

The chicken pieces are marinated with the spices prior to cooking. You may omit the potatoes addition. Come, let's check out the recipe!
