About Moroccan Chicken Tagine Recipe

This is a classic Moroccan Dish where marinated chicken is slow cooked to perfection in a Tagine pot. This is my version of this popular cuisine, where I have added some yoghurt. Rest of the spices used are very much a part of Moroccan cuisine. This is a delicious dish with a subtle flavour of the saffron. Few sliced veggies like carrots and potatoes along with dates, prunes and apricots too, can be added. It is traditionally relished with couscous, but for the Indian palate rice or any Indian bread is perfectly fine.
