Chili Chicken( Gravy )

Indo Chinese is one of our family's favorite dish. Chicken Pakoda, hakka noodles and Schezwan fried rice are some of our favorite dishes. Due to Covid-19 lockdown, I have made so many new dishes which I kept postponing for years now. Chilli Chicken is one such recipe, I didn't knew it was such a simple recipe until I made it one day. I have served it with Vegetable fried rice, it goes very well with noodles and plain white rice too. 

This recipe goes to week 2 day 1 of Blogging Marathon 118 under the theme " Cook your favorite food".
