Rara Chicken (Murgh) Recipe

Chicken Rara or RaRa Murgh is one of my personal favorites. When I was still in college there was this shop just near the college gate that used to serve an amazing combo of RaRa Chicken and paranthas. Whenever I had some extra money saved up I would always go to the small restaurant and eat to my full.  Over the years I’ve learn to prepare this amazing dish and today I would like to share it with you.
