How to make Murgh Musallam
To make this traditional recipe, you need to prepare a spice mix using nutmeg powder, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds. Add water and mix it well.
If you want the spices to blend well, you can also make it into a paste, this makes the spices mix well. Ensure that the consistency of the paste is slightly smooth. Next, add the ginger- garlic paste, onion paste and green chilly puree in a bowl. Add the ground spices, red chilli powder, turmeric powder in the mixture and mix well
Then take another bowl and add yogurt. Add the spice paste along with some mustard oil and salt according to your choice. Now add chicken and allow it to marinate in the mixture for an hour. Then take another pan and put the remaining oil, and once the oil is hot enough, add the cumin seeds, bay leaves, green chilies and fry them on medium flame.
Then add onions and saute them until they turn light brown. If you like the smokiness of onions and garlic, then stir fry on high flame. This will add a nice smokiness to the dish. Now add the marinated chicken and cook until the oil begins to separate.
Then add water as per your taste and cover the chicken. Then sprinkle salt as per your taste. If you want to make this dish more delicious, add a paste of soaked almonds (optional). This will add a creamy texture to this dish.
Take a nice serving bowl and pour the gravy along with the chicken pieces. Garnish the dish with coriander leaves and serve. If you like you can also garnish it with onion rings.
