How to make Dum Ka Murg

  1. Mix all the ingredients listed except water and marinate chicken for 2 hours.
  2. Now take the marinated chicken mixture in cooking lagan (skillet), add water and then seal the dish with aluminum foil and then cover with a tight lid to make sure the vapor doesn’t go out at all.
  3. Alternatively you can seal this with dough.
  4. Cook on a high flame for 5 minutes and then transfer the dish on to an iron tawa and then again cook on low flame for 25 minutes.
  5. After this burn two small pieces of coal, take them in small steel bowl covered with aluminum foil, sprinkle few drops of oil or ghee and then put it in the chicken dish and close the lid for 5 minutes.
  6. This imparts smoky aroma to the chicken. Remove the coal bowl and serve hot with roti’s.

My Tip:

Note: Slice the onions very thinly and squeeze out excess water and then deep fry them to get crispy onions. Soak almonds and cashew (1:1 ratio) nuts in hot water, de skin almonds and grind them together.
