Chicken Kolhapuri recipe

Chicken Kolhapuri recipe:
Chicken Kolapuri

Chicken Kolhapuri is a traditional and spicy Maharastrian dish which has its roots in Kolhapur city .It is aromatic,spicy and full of flavors.To tell you the truth I love kolhapuri chappals as much as I love chicken Kolhapuri . One special spice blend called the "Goda Masala(Click here for Goda Masala Recipe)" is used in cooking this curry,the Goda masala(Click here for Goda Masala Recipe) can be brought from the stores or can be made at home as well.I prefer to make the goda masala by myself and then I store it in a jar. The Chicken Kolhapuri is generally served as a main dish with rice or chapatis.I use boneless chicken for this recipe and make the gravy thick as it goes well with the chapatis or rotis,this curry can also be enjoyed with parathas(For plain paratha recipe click here) or naans.Happy Cooking!!!
