Chicken Dak Bungalow or Chicken Dak Banglow is easy to make and crowd pleaser dish with maximum flavour! Some people also called it Chicken Dak Bangla.
This Chicken recipe is an Anglo–Indian dish. The original recipe was Chicken Dak Bangla roast. Chicken Dak Bungalow tastes best with Indian Paratha or Porota, but sometimes I like to serve the dish with Luchi.
