Chicken Bharta was prepared last weekend in our lunch. The recipe is punjabi inspired bengali dish. A very tasty shreded (pulled) chicken preparation that is famous throughout India. It has onion and tomato based gravy with beautiful flavour of kasuri methi and butter. In kolkata it's a frequently ordered dish in restaurants. To bring that exact flavour of resturant 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 plain roti to enjoy it's authentic flavour.
