Chicken with Rice flour and Dry bamboo shoots

Chicken with rice flour and dry bamboo shoots. 

Sharing a simple yet delicious Assamese style chicken curry recipe from my kitchen. Rice flour is traditionally used in making different curries by various indigenous tribes of Assam.  Bamboo shoots is again used hugely among these various tribes. Fermented and grated bamboo shoots are dried on sun and stored for later use. This chicken curry recipe is very easy to prepare and can also be eaten like a stew. As rice is the main food of different Assamese tribes and communities,  so this chicken curry recipe is generally served with steamed rice.
