This is one of my all time favourite recipe. I have tasted it quite a few times in few restaurants. The outer stays so crispy while the interior stays so juicy..
During last trip to russia, hubby got so many international ingredients from there. He got me a whole lot of japanese ingredients like sake, wasabi, seaweed sheets, panko and many more..So you will be seeing quite a few international recipes in the coming post..This is the first recipe which i made and it turned out really good..
