Chilli Chicken

 

Chilli chicken and fried rice used to be my Mothers main course for special occasions during my school days. But I don’t know I never tried it until recently. We had gone to my husband’s friend Nirmal”s house and got a chance to have what they prepared. It was so tasty and I decided to try it. It came out well and now once every week we prepare it at home.
