Chicken Bharta was prepared last weekend in our lunch. The recipe is Punjabi inspired Bengali dish. A very tasty shredded (pulled) chicken preparation which is famous throughout India. It has onion and tomato based gravy with beautiful flavor of kasuri methi and Garam masala. Of course, how can I forget about the Boiled Egg? To make an excellent Chicken Bharta you have to finish it off with boiled egg yolk. In Kolkata it's a frequently ordered dish in restaurants. To bring that exact flavor of restaurant I have used 'tandoori masala', believe me, do not skip this masala because it will definitely give the taste a big uplift. Chicken bharta goes very well with any rice preparation or naan, kulcha. But pair it with some naan or plain roti to enjoy it's authentic flavor.
