Chicken kuruma

I was searching for the perfect chicken kuruma for a long time and last found one right there in my computer.I had saved this recipe from a tamil magazine called tamilmurasu.As new owners(sun network) brought this evening newspaper, they started promoting the paper bigtime.One of the key pages in the paper was this recipe page.But sadly, they stopped publishing this recipe page.(But they are still in the archives).I had bookmarked all my fav.ones and still am able to visit the old website.But don't know how long i will be able to do that.I had saved some of the chicken recipes from the paper and tried this delicious chicken kuruma this weekend with few changes.Came out really well and hubby,son loved it.
