Chicken Kasha is a typical Bengali dish. It is actually a semi dry preparation of chicken slowly cooked with different types of spices keeping the pieces intact without breaking them.

cumin powder                    1tsp
Coriander powder              1 tsp
Garam masala powder        1 tbsp
Cinnamon                           2 stick
Cardamom                         5 to 6
Clove                                 5 to 6
