ABOUT Sangameshwari Chicken. RECIPE

Sangameshwar is a taluka in the Konkan region falling in the Ratnagiri district and has a food history when it comes to spicy coastal food, happening on the sangam of the two rivers Sonavi and Shastri. The food is just awesome and tourists come from far and wide to taste the chicken preparation of this area. Today I am presenting the famous Sangameshwari chicken. This is especially eaten as a Protein and Fats booster in winters.
