Assam/Tamarind Chicken ~ 亚参鸡

This sourish and  slightly spicy chicken dish is best served with hot steaming plain white rice most welcoming on a wet and cooling day.  The addition of curry leaves enhanced the aroma of the dish and also added some colour to it.  Serve this with some crunchy greens to complete this wholesome meal.
