Kolhapuri chicken curry is a very spicy curry from the Kolhapur region. If you are a spicy eater then this recipe is apt for you…Like South Indian sambar powder, goda masala (spice mix) is a must in Maharashtrian cuisine. Today’s recipe includes the making of masala at home. Honestly my kids don’t eat spicy stuffs but I prepare this for my H who loves chicken much…You can make the same curry with mutton where the authentic recipe meant for…
