About Hyderabadi Murgh Ka Salan Recipe

This is a very popular and a delicious chicken curry - a true Hyderabadi style. It has a very rich and a creamy texture, coming from the use of coconut, peanuts, sesame seeds and yoghurt. Relish it with another Hyderabadi rice preparation - the Bagara Rice. It also goes well with pulao, plain steamed rice, naan or tandoori roti.
