A special chicken curry (gravy dish) made of fresh chicken and basic spices. Muslim boatmen, plying boats along the riverine bengal-assam border of India (when the country was a British colony), used to make this dish. The boatment would take time off to cook a meal for themselves in the middle of the river journey and gradually it became popular with the passengers too.
To my grandfather, simple life was sailing down the river with a plate of rice and steaming goalondo steamer curry.
