Other Indian Recipes - Chicken with Coriander

I wanted to try chicken a little bit differently and thought of cooking it with Mint,Coriander leaves and onion paste which we call in Telugu as Pachchi Masala.
I did not have mint , so just did with coriander but anyway turned out good. I love potatoes in a non veg curry , the gravy makes it so tasty that I leave chicken aside and just eat potatoes.
