Wanna go for something healthy and delicious as well. If yes than here is a recipe from my region Naga Style Chicken Curry Chicken With Bamboo Shoots And Greens. 

It is a zero oil dish. Very simple and easy to make. Naga Cuisine is also considered as one of the healthiest. Most of the dishes are consumed in boiled/steamed form. And doesn’t use much spices apart from local spices and herbs. 

Here the chicken is boiled with bamboo shoots, grounded green chillies, crushed ginger garlic and greens and flavored with sichuan peppercorns. Just few simple ingredients and you will have a scrumptious curry. I am sure you will like it. 

Please do try and let me know how it turn out for you. I would love to have your feedback 😀
