Royal Chicken

Cooking is an art and I started learning how to cook only when I went abroad to study and spent days without good home-cooked food. As soon as I came home the first thing I wanted to learn was chicken as it is a dish that provides proteins and minerals at the same time and is easy to make and can be consumed with both rice and bread (rotis).This dish is called royal chicken and as the name suggests, is very rich and spicy, but with fewer ingredients, lesser cooking time and best results.

  • Turmeric powder
  • Chilly powder
