    Bint e Naeem's Note:

    This is a really easy & quick recipe. And guys, I am already warning people with no tolerance to spicy food. Beware. This can be the most spiciest food ever. You can always lessen the amount of red chilli paste in eat but in my views you'll ruin the whole point of this dish. Its one of my all time favorites. I always make this dish with Bhagaar walay chawal( stir fried rice) & spicy green chutney & serve it wit sliced lettuce & cucumbers. For a perfect taste do not add all ingredients at once. The timing in when you add what to a dish while cooking makes a big difference in its taste. Enjoy till you start sweating :)

      This is very easy and very delicious. For a little different style, we sometimes wrap this in a large pita with some salad type veggies (tomato, red onion, lettuce) and yogurt cucumber sauce for a delicious sandwich.

      Great recipe. My husband has been dying to make our own chili chicken after loving it at Ghareeb Nawaz on Devon in Chicago. We made our own tandoori spice mix and used Ziyad brand red hot pepper sauce. It was spicy but actually not quite as hot as what we were going for, probably due to the brand of chili paste. So next time (and there will be a next time!) we make it we'll probably add some extra chili powder or try a different chili paste. It was fabulous with homemade roti. Thank you so much for the recipe!

      Phenomenal recipe! Chili chicken is one of my favorite dishes at the Pakistani/Indian restaurants on Chicago's Devon ave. I tried so many recipes to replicate it at home to no avail until I found this one. This tastes exactly like the real thing. I'm amazed at how ridiculously easy it is to cook. This one is a keeper for sure. Thanks for a gem of a recipe Bint e Naeem.
