Chicken Kadhi with Spring Onion Rice

Submitted by Salma Banu

About the cook: Titled as "India's first real chef" by kelloggs, I love preparing delicious, quick & healthy meals.

About the dish: This Indian recipe is an outcome of failed recipe trial... It is definitely a twist to the Indian Kadhi as it is made with chicken....the actual kadhi is always supposed to be vegetarian.... You would definitely love the simple flavors of the kadhi & it tastes heavenly when paired with spring onion rice.
