CHICKEN HANDI RECIPE, How To Cook Restaurant Style Chicken Handi

We have a variety of chicken recipes. Chicken is one of the most popular food items and so does it’s dishes. Recently I’ve tried a Chicken Handi recipe of chicken and it comes out so delicious and lip-smacking.


The thing that I liked about this recipe is that no extra preparation has to be done, no overloaded spices that you forget. It can be cooked with minimum ingredients easily available in the kitchen.


The best thing is that you just need chicken, and can be cooked in the last minutes if some guests arrived. The flavors are different from regular chicken recipes that make it scrumptious.
