Chicken Kurma - A recipe which lead to an eating competition

Whenever I hear Chicken Kurma, I automatically get reminded of the Sunday breakfasts at my in law's. My mom-in-law, most of the time, makes Chicken Kurma for Idly/Dosa for breakfast and my husband and my bro-in-law will be literally into an eating competition. I used to wonder... was it because of my mom-in-law's chicken kurma or was it because they were hungry.Hmm..I bet it was because of the recipe.
