I think that I need not explain about the taste of chicken dishes. Chicken is very popular and it is used by non-vegetarians. Chicken is very soft meat and chicken pieces with bone are tastier. Chicken is highly demanded non vegetable item in shop because it is using for homely needs and celebration, functions or special occasions. Its price is little bit less comparing other meat items so its demand will increase. We can't avoid chicken dishes for wedding, birthday, Christmas and Easter. Chicken is mainly used to make or try new dishes or recipes. Chicken dishes will be available in all non-vegetarian hotels and restaurants. Chicken is using in every states and countries. Today, I made a special chicken roast that is called as masala chicken roast. Actually I can't express its taste by words that mean its taste is amazing or unimaginable. We will get its taste when we make it. I made it as an experiment but it is really good and tasty. Today is Sunday so I decided to make a new dish with chicken earlier so I made it today. It is very spicy and contains the smell of masala, taste of butter and creamy effect of thick coconut milk. You can serve it with hot rice, chapati, bread and appam for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To get the exact taste of this dish use it with hot. I used only traditional ingredients to make this dish. Chicken will become soft due to lime juice. Its main flavours are cumin seeds and cinnamon stick. It is very good to serve guests because it gives a new and variety experience. Try this tasty dish and enjoy well.
