A new post for all chicken lovers...this time it is Chicken Sukka!

Sharing sukka chicken recipe was on list for  long time...although I am making this since a long time now.
The first time ever I had tasted this sukka, was in an Udupi restaurant, and this was by far the best! That taste still lingers on my lips.
Sukka chicken is made in a variety of ways.Based on the location with which its name is associated the style , spices and taste varies.
I have tried so many different varieties of chicken sukka till name a few kolhapuri,malwani and more!

Do try this recipe of mine and Let me know!
