Gavthi Chicken Rassa- Country Style Chicken Curry

4 from 2 votes

Better late than ever. It's an embarrassment that I didn't even once cook this classic dish in my kitchen till date. The chicken was so close to the ones you get in dhaba that I was surprised what the hell I was doing.
I got this recipe from a friend whose Mom cooks it for a restaurant. Goes very well with Chapatti and Rice. It's a recipe for the keep and it's a recipe you have to try it in your kitchen. I insist guys. If you are from Maharashtra, you probably know the recipe and could be a common dish for you all. For others, at least give a look at the recipe.
Every bite will be prove itself. The only difference you will find is probably the amount of oil that goes in the recipe. Its slightly less than the original one. If you can burn all of it, feel free to add more.
