One of the aspects I like about the community we live in is it’s Cafe. Be it one of those days when I am unwell or that day when unexpected guests knock at the door, all I have to do is just make a call. Isn’t that such a blessing ?
D seems to be particularly fond of their Hyderabadi Chicken and always asks for that. Having stayed in Hyderabad for nearly 6 years, this was one dish I never came across. As the gravy was rich and green in colour, I prefer to call it Haryali Murg. After tasting it multiple times, I felt that I should try recreating this dish. I was so happy when both J and D gave the thumbs up. Another one to my list 🙂
