Desi murgh curry

Picture of desi murgh curry
Desi murgh is a chicken and onion based curry that is absolutely delicious. I first heard about it while watching Masterchef AU and decided I needed to make it. Now that I've made it and altered it a couple times, I decided it was time to share it here!

The best thing about desi murgh that it tastes wonderful on the second and third days - so while it might take a little while to make, you're going to have tasty dinners for a few days!

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • 2-3 pounds chicken (I am voting for boneless/skinless thighs here!)
  • 2 onions, sliced thinly
  • 3-5 tomatoes, diced, skin and seeds removed (I used five romas) scratch that! a 14.5 can of crushed tomatoes OR tomato sauce works best! :D used it in a pinch last time and it was amazing.
  • 1/4 cup yougrt (I used coconut yogurt)
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 2 teaspoons garlic
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon cumin, whole
  •  1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 cup water
This dish is best made in a giant skillet with a lid. (Especially if you use skin-on chicken!) Mine bit the dust recently, so I had to make do with a dutch oven. It worked but took a little longer. :)

Step 2: Brown the chicken

Add a little oil to a pan over medium high heat, and brown off your chicken.

I added a little pepper to mine before I did this.

Don't cook it all the way through here - we'll do that later!
