ABOUT Dhaba Chicken Kadahi/Karahi.. RECIPE

This kadahi reminds us of the authentic Punjabi style cooking with rich whole spices as in every dhaba style dish. This dish is served in almost all the dhabas (roadside restaurants) that line the highways in Northern India. Succulent and juicy chicken cooked in tangy tomatoes and whole spices give this dish an awesome flavour that will make you say, 'ooh la la'.
