Bhuna Chicken

Bhuna Chicken is a simple and easy recipe which a beginner can do easily. This recipe is popular in North India. It is a “dry curry” which means the masala clings onto the chicken. Bhunas are characterised by a thick, deliciously intense coating sauce with a well-spiced but moderate heat, perfect for warming the cockles on a chilly winter evening. Serve with fluffy basmati rice and some homemade roti. This is a rugged spicy dish usually prepared with scanty gravy and roasted whole spices which clearly visible on the face of the dish. The differences between Kadai Chicken and Chicken Bhuna Masala are very minute. The use of whole & roasted spices & the absence of Capsicum are the only notable differences in cooking. However, they taste very different due to the different treatment of spices.
