Handi Chicken - By Chef Ahmed

Here’s the story behind this recipe: So a couple of years ago when we were in Jaipur, India we went to a famous restaurant named Handi. It was so good we had to go back a 2nd time! When we got back home to Canada we wanted to try to recreate one of the recipes so we did a little bit of searching and experimenting and it was successful.  The End.  :)

Now we want to share it with you and I hope you like it as much as we did.
