When the better-half takes over the kitchen, wonder happens. Today’s dish is not mine, it my husband’s. This is his special recipe and the dish has been cooked solely by him from scratch.

Chicken Chaap is traditionally a Mughlai dish brought to Bengal by the Mughals straight from Awadh. A large portion of Bengal’s traditional non vegetarian Muslim dishes have Awadhi influence on them and thanks to the Mughals for that. A lot of Mughlai dishes got a Bengali twist as the Nawabs moved their headquarter in Murshidabad – fish mingled with rice to form Mahi Pulao, Biriyani got its alu (potato) and…

In every Bengali household, Sunday lunch is incomplete without a special Murgir Jhol (chicken curry). Normally, what we prepare is chicken with potato cooked in a spicy stew.

The moment I was being asked to cook for someone else, I used to become super clumsy and that was kinda nightmare for me. Then came…
