Alleppey Chicken Gravy

< br/> This is one gravy I tasted during a trip to Alleppey. We stayed in a house boat and it was an awesome and unforgettable experience.I was really doubtful on what they would cook on a boat..When I saw their kitchen I was shocked..It was similar to a star hotel kitchen with all gadgets and they were cooking with mineral water..So we were eagerly waiting to taste their food. They served our morning tea and we were busy taking pics. They surprised us with a great lunch...I had not eaten the red rice in my life and was little hesitant. But when I tried it with this gravy it was so good..They prepared so many varieties to the extent till today I feel that was the BEST FOOD I EVER ATE.

After a long day on the back waters they gave a finishing touch with a candle light dinner with lobster fry !!!! It was great experience and people do not miss the fun !!!!

This was the house boat we stayed and the pic was taken from a country boat we rented
