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!



Ingredients
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
Oil

Method

  • 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.
