Capsicum Chicken Curry (Chinese Style)


My daughter wanted me to make Chicken Fried rice for her lunch box, I need some gravy to accompany this fried rice. I found some pieces of leftover capsicum and few pieces of chicken strips lying in my refrigerator and so decided to make gravy with these. But I never hunted for recipe, just like that tried with what I got at home.

Capsicum Chicken Curry was delicious, my kids loved it a lot. The texture, aroma, taste and the color came out very well than I expected. Let me share the recipe…
