How to make Murg Masala Curry

  1. Prepare the marinade by making gashes on the chicken pieces, then add the curd, salt, garam masala powder, kashmiri mirch and ginger-garlic paste. Keep this marinade in the refrigerator for about 8 hours on a medium cooling.
  2. At the time of cooking, place the chicken with the marinade in a pressure cooker, add 1/2 glass of water and steam the chicken keeping it on a low flame. Let it cook for 2 more minutes after the whistle blows or till it softens. Then separate the chicken and the stock.
  3. Heat butter and oil in a pan. Add the green cardamoms, caraway seeds, cumin seeds, bay leaves and cloves. Once it splutters, add the ginger-garlic paste and cook for a few mins.
  4. Next add the sliced onions and cook till it's golden brown in colour. Add coriander powder and kashmiri mirch, cook for another 2 mins.
  5. Add the blended tomatoes and cook till the masala releases oil. Then add cream and stir well.
  6. Now add the chicken stock and cook till the mixture starts to boil. Then simmer for about 10 mins.
  7. Add the chicken pieces, now cover and cook for 15 mins on a low flame.
  8. Add honey, kasoori methi, then cover and cook for another 10 mins on a low flame.
  9. Garnish with cream and coriander leaves and serve it hot!

My Tip:

The marinade should not be kept at a very low temperature so as to allow effective seeping in of it into the chicken pieces.
