Chicken Jagatpuri is very much similar to the chicken masala recipe, with a wonderful garnishing of fried eggs..The dish is very tasty with full of aroma and the garnishing made it more tempting and inviting..This is made by my husband and the name is dedicated to the place, where he had it...My husband during his bachelor days was a big fan of this dish made in a Dhaba of Jagatpur, a place in Cuttack, Orissa, India...So we kept the dish name as chicken jagatpuri...:)...and here it goes:-
