ABOUT Chicken Kosha - Bengali Style RECIPE

Chicken Kosha is just as delicious as the classic Bengali Mutton Kosha. Kosha means frying the marinated chicken on a low flame till dry before adding the water. It is a dry preparation and it is so comforting to have it along with some luchi (poori). You just don't need anything else to satiate your hunger and to give you full satisfaction. It can also be served with rice, pulao or any other Indian bread.
