Kadai Chicken is yet another popular recipe in this part of the world. The word “Kadai” in Hindi means Wok. How the dish got its name is still a mystery to me. This recipe is by one of my favourite books, written by Jiggs Kalra. Even though the original recipe doesn’t call for either onions or capsicum, I have taken the liberty to make my own version. Here’s the recipe.. 🙂
