Mughlai Chicken Curry
For Paste :
For Paste :
- At first take all the ingredients in a small grinder, add some water and soak for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes grind them to make a smooth paste and keep aside.
- Now take the chicken wash and clean them, put them on a large strainer for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes put the chicken in a large bowl, add sour curd, turmeric, kashmiri red chili powder, and the paste which we made earlier.
- Mix them all together with your hand and keep the marinated chicken aside for atleast 1 hour. If you can put the marinated chicken for 2-3 hours, it would be great, but if yu don't have enough time 1 hour is ok.
- Now heat the vegetable oil & ghee in a large non-stick pan, add the finely chopped onion, salt & sugar and start frying them. Fry till the onion becomes nice golden brown.
- Now add the marinated chicken into the pan, and cover the pan with a lid for 10 minutes. In this 10 minutes, the chicken will release lots of water, which will help the chicken to be soft & tender.
- After 10 minutes, open the lid, higher the heat and let the water evaporate. After sometime, all the water will be evaporated and oil will start oozing.
- Keep stirring to prevent the curry stick at the bottom. In the meantime, boil 1 cup of water in a bowl.
- Keep stirring for 2-3 minutes, after theat add the boiled water to the chicken. Cover the pan and lower the heat for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes open the lid, check the salt & sugar.
- Garnish the curry with fresh cream and serve with Indian Breads Or Any Rice Items.
