Yes naaz you are correct!! In Hyd the curry leave are not at all taken as optional (specially for chicken 65)...I just love chicken 65 and seeing this recipe of chicken 65 without curry leave makes me feel's not to try it..I think padmaja should try it once with curry leave. Me too from Hyd.


Did you forget the curry leaves dear? I heard that curry leaves are added along with the slit green chilies into this recipe.
