On my work on Indian curries I always wondered why people made a fuss about dhabha style and restaurant style and what is the actual difference between then I researched about it and found out that there are really logical reasons about them…

Dhabha style is more to towards classic style of cooking simpler ingredients are used and that is what makes the difference so here is my Dhabha style curry I hope you like it J

    Hi Bharat, made your dhabha chicken today. Turned out really nice, the only changes I made were that I used Greek yogurt so did not strain it and I mixed it with roasted gram flour then added it. I was worried that the yogurt would curdle otherwise, I have heard this way will prevent yogurt from curdling.
    May I offer you a gentle suggestion, could you pls put the entire recipe on your website so We don’t have to play your video repeatedly 🙂
