  • ginger galic paste 1 tbsp
  • Whole garam masalas (each) 2 gms

How to make Lahori Chargha

  1. First cut the chicken into halves and give them slits.
  2. Take a bowl, add ginger garlic pieces, whole garam masala, citric acide, turmeric, salt and coriander leaves. Put all these ingredients into a blender, make a fine paste.
  3. Marinate the chicken with this prepared masala for 2 hours.
  4. Arrange the chicken pieces into the steamer and steam for 10 minutes, let them cool down so that the masala sticks with the chicken pieces.
  5. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the chicken pieces on both sides.
  6. Serve hot.

My Tip:

Citric acid, gives a nice tangy flavour.
