Peri-Peri Chicken 65

It is what the name suggests – a rather recent invention from Tamil Nadu, the Chicken 65, marries the piquant Peri Peri that’s native to Portuguese but synonymous with African or particularly South-African culinary traditions. Attributed to the ingenuity of the migrants who created the dish to appease their palates.
