Dhaka Chicken Masala Recipe

Although it’s named after a city in Bangladesh, it’s a dish that truly has the Lahoris asking for more! Unlike a typical fried popcorn chicken, each piece of the chicken is deliciously moist. National Chicken Jalfrezi Masala and National Chilli Garlic Sauce together make the most divine tangy sauce, which could either be served atop or as a dipping option. A perfect accompaniment to rice!
