Chicken Bhuna Masala Recipe

Chicken Bhuna Masala is a popular Indian dish made with tender chicken pieces cooked in a rich and flavorful masala sauce. The chicken is marinated in a blend of spices and then cooked with onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, and a variety of aromatic spices. The dish is slow-cooked to allow the flavors to meld together, resulting in a deliciously tender and aromatic chicken curry. It is typically served with rice or naan bread and garnished with fresh coriander leaves.
