This is a great recipe for preparing Maharashtrian style chicken. We followed it step by step and it turned out really good. You might want to add poppy seeds and coriander leaves to add a nice flavor. But apart from that it is perfect.

This recipe is not very Maharashtrian -- use special Maharashtrian kala or goda masala for an authentic recipe.
