Chicken Chatpata OR Tangy & Spicy Chicken

Chicken Chatpata 1


Chicken Chatpata is one of the easiest and quickest chicken curry to make. The word Chatpata  means Tangy in English. And I would recommend this chicken recipe to Bachelors or working people who are always short of time and out of ideas to cook during the week. This Spicy and Tangy Chicken recipe is gonna turn out to be a treasure, on days when you are short of time or have some surprise guests home for dinner. 🙂


Chicken Chatpata 2


I came across this recipe almost a decade back when i had just started learning to cook. This recipe was shared at Bombay Times by some celebrity then. And this recipe is very special to me as it is one of the first thing my hubby ever cooked for me. As well the first chicken recipe i have noted in my cook book. Looking at my notes I wanna laugh today at how badly i have written the recipes down. 😉

Thank you for visiting my Blog. And i hope you all like this recipe.
