Think North Indian cuisine, the first dish that comes to our mind is butter chicken. Juicy chicken chunks, dunked in rich and creamy tomato gravy - sounds heavenly, right? We all love butter chicken and there's no denying to it. It is, in fact, one of the most popular Indian dishes across the globe. So much so that today we see people doing various culinary experiments with butter chicken. From butter chicken pizza to butter chicken burger and sandwich - we find butter chicken added to almost every popular dish we can think of. We recently came across another such dish where the popular Punjabi chicken curry is added to the most popular street food of India - gol gappa. Also called panipuri, phuchka, gupchup and more, this delicacy and its fans are available at every nook and corner of the country.
Now, imagine adding butter chicken (instead of aloo) as the stuffing for golgappa! Sounds interesting, isn't it? This is why we thought of giving this dish a try. And guess what? The experience was quite interesting, and of course, unique. The crunch of the sooji/atta balls infuses with the soft and juicy texture of the chicken, leaving a strong impression on your mind. Want to give this dish a try? Here's how you can make it at home.
