Farah Khalid's Chicken Curry
We shared our chat with Farah Khalid of the Tempe Indo-Pak restaurant Curry Corner over the last two days. Now, she's sharing her recipe for Chicken Curry.
"So everybody has a different recipe but I make my chicken curry this way," she says. "I put the cinnamon sticks and cardamom in because it gives it flavor. Otherwise, it's good, but with adding these little things it gives it a little more."
