Dhaba Style Chicken Kasha ~ Cooking by My Hubby

Both of us (me and my husband) have always desired to eat dhaba style food. Dhaba style chicken kasha is very spicy and tasty. When we return from my hometown, at the moment of crossing highway, we like better to eat dinner at roadside dhaba. My hubby prefers to have various types of dish which are prepared by chicken, so he always favors to order chicken kasha and tandoori roti. To give me a treat he prepared some dhaba style dinner for us. It was really beyond my imagination. The recipe was made with aromatic Indian spices. It goes well with tandoori roti, naan or paratha...
