Chicken Vindaloo

Almost 4 years back I had one chicken recipe in one of my cousin sister’s place during bhai Phota or Bhai Dooj after that I never had that and never prepared also at home. Yesterday my sister called me and she told that she is going to make that chicken recipe for this year Bhai Phota again. Then only I asked my sister the recipe and made it for our today’s dinner. The dish is called Chicken Vindaloo. I never forget that day because almost we all cousin brothers and sisters having so much of lunch that we were not able to stand after that. O my god what a day. Few memories are always very close to our heart and cousins are the best childhood friends for all of us.

The specialty of this dish is chicken prepared with potato. As a bong chicken with potato is the best combo for us. The cooking procedure is quite easy. We enjoyed our last night dinner with this
