Pasanda posits itself as a royal Mughlai fare, usually made for special occasions. Pasanda is traditionally made with lamb or goat pieces, which are flattened to make slices. The slices are marinated and fried, and cooked in a gravy of tomatoes, yogurt and cream. Mutton pasanda is often served in north Indian households wanting to put up an indulgent fare. You'll also find this dish in authentic Mughalai restaurants. Nowadays, chicken pasanda is also quite popular; the difference is just in the meat; the cooking process, the gravy and the spice flavours - all remain the same. Adding to the variety of pasanda, here is a recipe for a pasanda snack made with chicken.

Another thing that stands out in this dish is the green paste in which the chicken is marinated.
