Walnut Chicken Curry - For That Crunchy Flavor

Walnuts add a crunchy flavor to the dishes. And being high in protein can be used as replacement of foods that are high in saturated fats (such as cheese and meat). Is considered "brain food" due to its high levels of omega-3. Although the dish I have made is high in calories. Hence, Walnut chicken curry is something to be eaten once in a while, may be to celebrate any special moment. To add no more calories to it, have it with steamed rice.

1 cup yogurt
1 tbsp garam masala
salt to taste
