Ingredients to make Hyderabadi Murg Qorma

  • chicken 1 kg.
  • yoghurt 250 to 300 gm
  • ginger garlic paste 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Garam masala powder a tbsp
  • chilli powder a tbsp
  • Qorma masala a tbsp (optional)
  • onions deep fried about 3 large
  • Potatoes about 2 cut into medium cubes or semi circle shaped also fried in the same oil as onions
  • salt to taste
  • butter or ghee a tbsp.
  • coconut milk a small cup.
  • Peanut butter 2 tbsp.(my secret magic ingredient)
  • coriander for garnish a handful
  • Green chillies slit about 5

How to make Hyderabadi Murg Qorma

  1. Marinade the chicken with all the ingredients except the onions.
  2. Deep fry the onions and the potatoes.
  3. After about 30 mins, switch on the gas and let the chicken cook.
  4. Lower the flame at first and as it starts bubbling, add the onions green chillies and the potatoes.
  5. No need to add any extra oil as we already have deep fried both the onions and the potatoes.
  6. Mix well and simmer on medium flame after adding some hot water.
  7. Adjust the water quantity according to your own preference since yoghurt is already added and it leaves a lot of water.
  8. After simmering for about 15 mins, add ghee or butter.
  9. Garnish with lots of coriander.
  10. Serve hot with Afghani Naan.

My Tip:

Peanut butter is my secret ingredient here. Try it to believe it.
