 Punjabi Murgh Tariwala, can call as Punjabi Tariwala Chicken, An unique Curry from punjabi cuisine which is very common in Punjabi Households. I adore most of the Punjabi cuisines fro the blended rich masala flavours. 

Last month Me and Priya(Priyasmenu) had a chit chat in phone, we discussed so many cuisines and had a thought to explore more in Punjabi Cuisine. I was dreaming for this moment so had a good chance to share my knowledge on Punjabi cuisine. Punjabi cuisine is a most delectable one.
