Chicken Dhamaal


I saw this recipe from Mr. Narendra Chandala on Sikandalous Cuisine few days back and fell in love at the first sight! Come Thursday, I was ready to get to the kitchen and make this delicious looking recipe. I made some minor changes but the result was absolutely lip-smacking. The dish tasted so good, was quite hot & spicy and perfect to kick-start our weekend. I gave the recipe a new name though as it definitely was Dhamaal! Do give this a shot folks!

I added 2 type of red chilli powders & 4 green chillies in the recipe which ensured that I was sweating a lot after my dinner! But both of us love this spicy quotient in our meals and it was not much of a problem for us. You can cut down on their quantity depending on your preference.
