How to Make Roshan Lal Chicken Recipe

The Roshan Lal is made up of three individual components that complement each other. The chicken is dry cooked in the oven and the Roshan Lal sauce is made up over the course of 50mins to fuse all the flavours together to provide a rich taste sensation. The sauce is added to the chicken and is served with cool mint yoghurt, which is then  garnished with fresh coriander  leaving you with a refreshing taste.
