I am a really big fan of indo-chinese food, whereas 'he' prefers mughlai or authentic bengali food more. Before marriage, I used to find excuses to go to any restaurant and eat 'chilli chicken' with rumali roti. I know what are you guys thinking. But don't know why I love this combo so much. In every street of Kolkata you can find various indo-chinese resturants. I mentioned Kolkata style because they make this chilli chicken on a little bit of dry side and also extra spicy. You can also serve this as starter. Try this easy chilli chicken recipe in your kitchen and enjoy with your family.
