C46 Chicken Hyderabad

This traditional dish from the city of Hyderabad in the East Indian state of Andhra Pradesh has been adapted to a BIR (British Indian Restaurant) style of cooking rather than the traditional style. The ingredients, particularly the spices, are typical of the area. This is an updated version but the original can still be found here.
