Chicken Maharaja is an amazing starter, easy to make, hardly any ingredients but lip smacking in taste.

Chicken Maharaja tastes best if the chicken is with the bone.  You will ask for more even though you have devoured the whole chicken.

My father came up with this recipe. He had read an article on how royals used to cook the animals they hunted. So he got an idea and tried this dish and it turned out really delicious. It was one my favourite dishes to eat when I was a non – vegetarian. Even others who tasted, loved it to the hilt. The reason he named it Chicken Maharaja is that, it is very easy to prepare and less time consuming. Apart from cleaning the chicken thoroughly, it requires very few minutes of preparation.

So, you will be surprised to know, that the main ingredients are chicken, red chillies, oil, salt and water. Perfect “Five Ingredients Dish” isn’t it?? You can always increase or decrease the number of chillies, as per one’s preference. I always liked it hot. Even if you eat the cooked red chillies, you will never be able to taste the heat of the chillies. I really mean it. I have eaten loads and never felt it. Even others who are averse to eating spicy food, tasted the chillies but couldn’t believe that they could actually eat a lot of these and not sweat.

Sounds mind boggling right?? Guys, I would never misguide you. Like I always say, these are tried and tested recipes. They mean a lot to me. They are not just dishes, but lots of great memories with family and friends.

Finally, I hope you guys really try and love it. Do share your comments and suggestions. Helps us do our job better.
