Chicken Groundnut Masala

This chicken groundnut masala is my own innovation. I like the flavour of groundnut with chicken and so I tried it and turned out delicious.

Groundnut is rich in energy and contains monounsaturated fatty acids. It contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It's good for children.
