Lahori Chargha

Ingredients to make Lahori Chargha

  • 1 whole large sized chicken, cleaned and given deep cuts or incision
  • yogurt about 100 gm
  • chilli Powder 2 tbsp
  • Kabab masala or tandoori masala 1 tbsp
  • Roasted coriander powder 1 tbsp
  • Roasted cumin powder 1 tbsp
  • Garam masala 1 tbsp
  • Whole garam masalas (like nutmeg mace and cardamom (badi elaichi) all roasted and powdered)
  • salt to taste
  • oil for frying

How to make Lahori Chargha

  1. Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients and keep it in the fridge for 2 hours atleast. ( For best results marinate it overnight.)
  2. The next step is to steam the chicken. (This is necessary because it gives it an authentic touch.) Steam it for 15 mins.
  3. Next fry it in hot oil on a medium flame for the next 15 mins while turning it occasionally to ensure even frying.
  4. Serve it hot with raita and salad, either rice or naan.

My Tip:

Use a large chicken 1-2 depending on your family members. Use fresh ones not frozen for the best taste.
