Murgh Musallam | Chicken Musallam Recipe | Chicken Recipes

Murgh Musallam Masala, chicken musallam is delicious curry from Mughlai Cuisine and Mughlai Cuisine always known for it's rich and flavors that's why everything is known as Shahi :) Normally Murgh Musallam is made with whole chicken where chicken is stuffed with freshly roasted spices amazing by itself, adds wonderful flavor and taste to the chicken but I am not doing full chicken here.

Murgh Musallam is known as gourmet dish from Mughlai cusine made with fresh spices in onion base gravy it's one recipe to relish and for any celebration or special occasion this murgh musallam is perfect recipe to enjoy with friends and family. You may find the list of ingredients long but if we properly plan the recipe and do the tasks simultaneously then we can make this musallam faster like I do while chicken gets marinated, I prepare the spice powder, saute and puree onion and almond paste then make the curry.


Or if you plan the menu ahead or making this for any big party then prepare the spice powder, onion paste, almond cashew paste a day ahead and use while making the curry it will reduce your cooking time a lot, you can also marinate the chicken and keep it over night in fridge too. I made this on weekend with paneer pulao, naan, aloo sabzi, raita and salad ya quite a spread when I am in mood I do such things :) Do try this murgh musallam and you will love this for sure
