Chicken Bharta

A very happy Holi to everyone...The festival of Holi always brings smile on my face...loads of childhood and teenage memories-at home with family, at hostel with friends and now in a far off land....Well today the recipe I am writing about is not related to Holi nevertheless this dish is a popular choice among Indians who love to eat non-vegeterian cuisine. Chicken Bharta always reminds me of my days in Kolkata, back in India... While I was working in a bank in Theatre Road we often use to place order from  Sharma's Dhaba in Ballyguange Circular Road and is my favourite for chicken bharta in the city...
