About Chicken Poha Bhujing/ Barbeque chicken with flattened rice

Chicken poha bhujing is a unique dish that you get in Vasai Virar region, Agashi bhujing centre, to be precise. Its a preparation made in a particular way since last 7-8 decades. Anyone going by that route, this dish is a must try for its unique combination of ingredients and special taste of the spices. Have tried to make it as close as possible. Of course, having the authentic and original one makes a difference but making your own is fortuitous. They grill the chicken on coal oven and grind masala with mortar which gives distinct flavour. I have tried to make up for those by adding coal smoke and coarsely grinding of spices. Bhujing can be your one pot meal or brunch or as tapas.
