Last wednesday husband demanded to make malvani chicken sukka along with bajari bhakari . I already had malvani masala sent by my mom so prepared this spicy & jhanjhanit chicken sukka along with bajari bhakari
A creamy chicken recipe with delicious spices and Malwani flavours. This recipe is a bit dry & sukka & doesnt has much gravy (rassa) .
