Chicken Dum Masala Recipe

As you all know by now Cooking and Eating is one of our (Me & Hubby’s) favorite hobbies. Plus we are surrounded by all foodie friends and family. To add more it’s even awesome to have a close friend who is a wonderful own made chef. I truly deny the fact that “Every man’s heart is through their stomach”, count in women too! This recipe is from one of my very old friend Shanon Dsouza, a fun loving person and has the charm to access anyone’s heart with his food and smile. He always posted his own made recipes and delicious looking pictures on his social media. And that’s how I thought to approach him for this delicious recipe post.
