mughlai chicken - easy, restaurant style, north indian recipe

What I feel about  Mughlai Chicken..

I'm going to be honest with you. Just the term mughlai is enough to put me off because I'm imagining a heavy gravy that leaves you feeling full.

And while I'm north Indian and paneer butter masala is in my blood, I don't like feeling like I ate a whole chicken in one sitting.

But this mughlai chicken recipe changed everything. Because I could've never imagined the kind of magic that brown onions and creamy cashews can do with some simple spices.

ingredients for mughlai chicken

This recipe has exactly 15 ingredients counting salt and all.

Chicken: The chicken is curry cut which is common terminology in India when you buy chicken. When you buy chicken outside, you can use any cut that is skinless but bone in. If you are using chicken breast, buy bone-in and then cut it into 1-1.5 inch pieces Onions: You can either chop the onions or slice them. Browning them takes some time and patience, approx 12-15 minutes but its well worth the effort. Just make sure to cook them on a low flame.

Ghee: Ghee is non negotiable for this recipe. If you really don't have access to it, use butter. The flavours are infinitely better than if you use oil Whole Spices: Bayleaf, cinnamon, cloves and green cardamom Cashews: These should be soaked in hot water for 10-15 minutes before blending Green Chilli: Sub with serrano pepper. Use 1-2. This is not meant to be a spicy dish so the chilli is more for flavour than heat Ground Spices: Standard spices like coriander powder, turmeric, chilli powder and garam masala (I have a recipe for homemade garam masala that you can try)
