Pakistani or Desi Style Spicy Chili Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bint e Naeem

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.
