Chicken Mastani

CHICKEN MASTANI”…Why this name? Because this dish is a combination of 2 recipes 😛 so it’s a new recipe with no name 😀 so thought of giving some unique name 😀 This dish is a combination of “Chilli chicken and Chicken masala”.


A really spicy dish. So use spices according to your desired level. 😉
