Very Good! I tried this recipe and it tasted very good. The only thing that bothered me was the yogurt falling apart when added as per the recipe and the chicken looked more like pink, maybe because of the yogurt(white)+red food color(red)=pink. My kids called it PINK CHICKEN. Will make it again. Thank You!

I would like to add that this dish is from Tamilnadu (chennai) region and not Andhra. It is called chicken 65 because of the year if was produced in the famous "Bhuhari" Hotels in Chennai. They also have chicken 78, 90 etc.

The only thing that did not get me is there is no curry leaves in this dish, I thought curry leaves is a must!! Am I right? What ever the dish turned out superb. Thanks. Keep posting such yummy dish.
