Things have been quite busy at my end. Going to office after a month long is quite a work with a loads of adjustment. Sometimes , I think to start working from home base. I am planning towards it and let’s see how things go with time.

Smoked Chicken masala/Dhua Dahi Murg

I have a list of pictures settled in my drafts and thought to start with a chicken dish as it’s been a long time , I posted any chicken recipe. The recipe of Smoked Chicken Masala ,  I am sharing today  is an altered version of my  recipe of Chicken Amravati. To give more flavor to the recipe I have marinated the chicken for an hour and then given a charcoal smoke. Believe me it just elevates the flavor taste of the dish with its smokiness. To make things much easier , I always keep my batch of marinated chicken in my weeks menu  to make this dish.
