Description:  This dish is a typical Maharashtrian village style of cooking the country chicken. Country chicken with bones spiced with green chillies, red chilli powder, flavoured with garlic and garam masala cooked in tomato based thick gravy and seasoned with browned grated copra powder enhances and highlights the flavours

Recipe Tips

As the name suggest, generally the country chicken is used for preparing this dish, but you can also use broiler chicken.

In Maharashtra normally we use Goda Masala for most of the chicken dishes. Can I use Gada Masala instead of Garam Masala?
