  1. Amazing! I made it and my husband loved it… I kept some of the dodhi in chunks and it was so tasty, absorbed the masala so well. Thank you very much!

  2. Thanks Jayant, there was a typo error and I had not added the meat/chicken. Yes. 1 kg of either chicken or any other meat. Some Parsis like a lot of meat on their plates. 🙂
    For a vegetarian dodhi, feel free to omit it. It still tastes good.
