Chicken Masaledar

Posted by

Although Fridays are meant to be “Biryani Day” for me but if you are a chicken lover you can crave for chicken any day of the week and any time of the day 😛  what to do 😛
I keep on experimenting new chicken dishes by combining 2-3 different chicken recipes 😛  or any other recipe. Trust me if you love cooking then don’t hesitate to alter any recipe according to you. Every time I experiment something delicious comes up 🙂
I was going through a “Aloo Biryani” post and thats when I decided to make chicken in Aloo Biryani masala. It came out SUPERHIT 😛
This dish is a combo of 80% Aloo Biryani masala+ 10% Pepper Chicken + 10% Kerala chicken curry= Chicken Masaledar.
A very delicious and mouthwatering chicken side dish to enjoy with chapatis/ rice.
