I’m married for almost a decade now and while my husband and I have very different personalities, we both are similar in our core and our values. One thing that we both absolutely love doing together is cooking. The one who chooses the recipe is the chef of the day and the other becomes the sous-chef. If food is good, life is good :)"

Are you also one of the victim of a food fad that says Ghee is fattening..?

In this modern era of several so called low fat, no fat, diet products, ghee has lost its glory. In-spite of being a saturated fat, ghee has shown to reduce both serum and intestinal cholesterol by triggering secretion of billiard lipids.


In a pan, heat the ghee till it melts. Lower the flame and then add the jeera/cumin seeds and let them splutter.

Add the Ginger and stir. Then add the Potatoes and Green Chillies and mix. Cover and cook for 5 mins

Then add the haldi, coriander powder and asafoetida (Hing) and stir. After about a minute, add the chicken, garam masala and salt

Mix all the ingredients well, then cover and cook till the chicken is done (about 5-7 mins) Do keep stirring in between.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with chapatis.
