Chicken Recipes

Murg Lahori

 

Murg Lahori…a little different version from our normal chicken curry. Chicken marinated in saffron (kesar) flavored gravy with a little tangy taste & creamy texture makes this dish yummy & presentable. This dish is a North Indian Recipe which today I have tried in Microwave as well as gas stove. I felt Microwave to be speedier than gas stove & Health wise also less consumption of oil.

 

 

Ingredients:

  •  Chicken with bones – 500gm (cut into 8pieces)
  •  Thick Curd/ Yogurt – 1cup
  •  Dry Fenugreek Seeds/ Kasoori Methi leaves – 1 ½ tsp
  •  Milk – ½ cup
  •  Saffron/ Kesar – ¼ tsp (soaked in 1tbsp warm water)
  •  Lemon Juice – ½ tsp

Paste:

  •  Onion – 2nos (finely chopped)
  •  Garlic – 6flakes
  •  Ginger – 1 ½ piece
  •  Garam Masala – 1tsp
  •  Chicken Masala – 1tsp
  •  Pepper powder – ½ tsp (optional)
  •  Degi Mirch – 1tsp

Microwave Dish:

Method:

  •  Put Chicken in a bowl. Add oil, lemon juice, ½ tsp salt & mix well. Cover & microwave for 10mins.
  •  Grind together all ingredients of the paste into a smooth paste in a mixer.
  •  Put the paste in a microproof dish and microwave for 5minutes.
  •  Add yogurt & kasoori methi. Mix very well.
  •  Add cooked chicken, milk, ½ cup water & soaked kesar. Mix well to coat the chicken with the masala.
  •  Microwave for 3mins. Serve hot.
  •  Murg Lahori is ready to serve hot. Best goes with Plain hot rice, Chapatti.

 

Normal Gas Stove:

Method:

  •  Add yogurt & kasoori methi. Mix very well.
  •  Add the marinated chicken, milk, ½ cup water & soaked kesar. Mix well to coat the chicken with masala.
  •  When the dish starts to boil, Close the pressure cooker with its lid & put pressure.
