Chicken Salna / Parotta Salna




Chicken  can also be done in a lots of variations And this is is one of those awesome preparations .My mom is very good at Non-Veg recipes and this is one of her delicious chicken item. It tastes great with rice and  we tasted this curry with frozen parathas too ,it was wonderful.   The  fresh ingredients we use makes this curry super tasty.The more the time of marination  gives more taste to the curry.I did this  with a pressure pan ,  You can use Kadai too…Try it  and see ,this will turn your favourite…
