Chicken Saunfia Tikka Recipe

Chicken Saunfia Tikka was a long due recipe after I tried it an my cousin’s place. My husband told me it is very delicious and I should try it out for the blog. So here it is.

You will find the process of preparing it somewhat similar to Chicken Afghani but the flavour is completely different because of the spices used in Chicken Saunfia Tikka. So even if you had tried Chicken Afghani, you are still going to love this one.
