Recipe Notes

  • For preparing this Ros to be eaten specially with the omlette and pao,  I prefer to make it with the chicken wings, bone pieces and chicken neck pieces etc... This is usually how the gaadas in Goa do it (local Goan Ros omelette stalls) with very few small chicken pieces. All the chicken bones etc give a very good flavor to the Ros.
