Achari Murgh

I had noted down this recipe from one of the apps installed in my phone. I seem to have uninstalled that app, can't find the recipe anywhere :(. Anyways, sharing the recipe which I had noted down here. This recipe, as the name suggests has the taste of pickle due to the pickling spices which goes into it. An explosion of flavors, yum yum!

1/2 Kg Chicken, cut into small pieces
1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Fennel seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1 tsp Turmeric powder
3 Green Chilies
1 Onion, sliced
1 tsp garlic paste
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 lime
Salt as required


  • In a bowl, mix the fennel, cumin, mustard, fenugreek seeds, red  chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt together.
  • Keep 3 tbsp of this mixture aside and mix with the juice of half lime.
  • Slit the green chilies and remove the seeds. Stuff the chilies with the 3 tbsp mixture with lime juice which is kept aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the remaining spice mix.
  • Add the onions after the mustard, cumin etc starts spluttering and fry till golden brown. Add a little salt.
  • Add the chicken pieces and stir well so that the spice mix coats the chicken fully. Do not add water.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smells goes.
  • Add the yogurt to the chicken and stir well. Adjust the salt.
  • Place the stuffed green chilies over the chicken and cook covered until the chicken is cooked.
  • Serve hot with roti.
