Chicken pasanda has got this particular name because once you taste it, it indeed becomes your pasandida (favourite) recipe. Chicken pasanda can be cooked exactly like mutton pasanda. So if you prefer mutton, try the same recipe for mutton pasanda.

Chicken pasanda gets its unique flavour quotients from the nutty paste and the blend of ground spices, which lend this dish a stunning flavour platter and makes it stand far apart from the regular chicken recipes that we usually cook. For any festival or an exciting family dinner, this creamy and delicious chicken recipe is a must!

Though chicken pasanda or chicken pasande requires a number of ingredients and a few crucial steps, making this dish is not a fussy task.
