Sorshe murgi(chicken in Mustard sauce and homemade mayonnaise)

This is a traditional recipe and many variations to this exists but I made it a fusion one by adding homemade mayonnaise and it tasted really great.But I insist on homemade mayonnaise only.The shop bought one  will definitely serve the purpose but the flavor will not be that great as this.In case anybody does not like the flavor and zing of mustard oil ,one can definitely avoid it.I am making this recipe for the third time in a family get together and everybody has liked it very much.
