Chicken Curry with Fingerling Potatoes
This time I had made this chicken curry with  chicken drumsticks/leg pieces and Fingerling potatoes. Fingerling potatoes are smaller than regular potatoes and they are finger like shaped. I like this cute looking pototes and it also tastes good in any curry. I do not remove the skin of potatoes coz as in the skin is very thin and tender. It really compliments the flavor of chicken when used in this curry. You can use any small potatoes but do not peel the skin, believe me it taste wonderful with the skin, really unique.  So, here goes the recipe for the same.
