Goalondo-Narayanganj Steamer Chicken Curry

This recipe was created in the early decades of the 20th Century, on the decks of steamers that ferried passengers across the mighty Brahmaputra. A simple, rustic and efficient recipe that wowed its patrons during the overnight journey in a time when there was no direct rail link between Kolkata and Dacca.

Bite into the succulent chicken that has marinated with chopped onions, ginger, garlic and turmeric and stewed in its own juices over a low flame, and you can almost sense the gentle swaying of the steamer as it chugs across the rippling waters of the Padma in the night.
