Once a Chicken Lover will always be a Chicken Lover... Isn't that true?? I hope all the hardcore non-vegetarians will agree with me with this context.


Yes chicken is been loved around the world in each and every corner, every country has its own method to prepare it according to there taste and preferences but when it comes to INDIA we have ample recipes for chicken in each state of INDIA. One of the popular lip-smacking recipe we call it a KADAI CHICKEN. It is very famous in all the North-Indian menus of restaurants in India.

KADAI CHICKEN is a customary dish that is made up of Fresh Whole Spices and known for its beyond-belief flavor. Do you ever think why we gave this dish name Kadai?? Well Kadai is nothing just a wok or gridiron there is no such story related behind its name, just a recipe made up of whole spices with a tomato puree/sauce. It is different from other Chicken Curry its gravy is thicker and more dryer & it perfectly taste best with Naan, Garlic naan or roti whatever you prefer.
