Chicken Ibrosi

Well, the name “Chicken Ibrosi” sounds interesting right? The curry is as tasty like its name. This recipe was shared with me by my aunt who is a very good cook . She had noted the recipe from a cookery show and edited the recipe as per her family’s taste. The naamkaran ie the naming ceremony of the dish was done by my uncle . Since they’ve been staying in an apartment named ‘Ibrose’ since few decades, the name ‘Ibrosi’ . Isn’t it catchy? I loved the named very much. Something different.The dish tasted so good just like restaurant style. The texture and the creaminess was just perfect. Do give it a try dear Readers . Until then stay tuned for interesting recipes!!
