Dhonepata Chicken (Chicken curry with fresh Coriander leaves)

      This recipe was lying in my draft for long and I think this is the perfect time to post it as the main ingredients of this chicken curry is Coriander leaves and the best of coriander leaves are available in winter. This is one chicken curry I can vouch for its taste. In winter, with the fresh coriander leaves, it takes the chicken curry in different level altogether.
