Shahi Murgh | Shahi Chicken | Chicken Curry Recipes

Shahi Chicken or Shahi Murgh is easy chicken curry made with mild spices and cooked in creamy almond, cashew paste. If you don't like spicy chicken dishes then this curry is wonderful choice. Unlike other chicken curry this shahi murgh is minimal spicy and taste little sweet and sour due to curd, almonds, coconut, cashews etc. You can also add some fresh cream towards the end of cooking but generally I don't add cream.

I made this Shahi Chicken along with babycorn biryani, roti, bhindi raita and seviyan on a weekend lunch and needless to say it was hit among all. Specially the chicken curry was appreciated much to my surprise.


If you are hosting party, gathering or just to please your family try this shahi chicken, a change from normal routine curry. This curry is also good options for potluck parties as it goes well with paratha, poori, roti or any rice variety.
