Lahori Murgh / Lahori Chicken

I love Pakistani dishes. I think my readers will be happy seeing some Pak recipes here. This time I have brought a simple chicken curry for you, Lahori Murg, from the famous cuisine of Lahore, Pakistan. This is a very easy preparation , cooking chicken in a coarse paste of onions , tomatoes and other spices! Forget about coconut and coriander powder, try out this, hope you are going to love it...

chicken 250g / 1/4kg
onion 2 medium
tomato 2
garlic and ginger paste 1 tsp each
green chillies 4 or more
coriander leaves few chopped
Kashmiri chili powder 1 tsp
pepper powder 2 tsp
garam masala 1/4 tsp

How I prepared
Wash and clean chicken pieces.
Grind onion and green chillies in a grinder to make a coarse paste.
Grind tomatoes also.
Heat oil, saute onion and green chilly paste.
When the color changes slightly, saute garlic and ginger paste too.
Add chicken and tomato along with powders and salt.
Pour little water enough to make chicken cook.
Cook until the chicken is done and you get a thick curry.
Serve hot with ginger julienned and coriander leaves.

  10. Besides Kashmiri Chilli powder what other powder can i use since i can't get the said chilli powder.

  11. Thanks Sumayya! :)

    Becky, You can use paprika powder instead.

  12. Hi Seena,
    Thanks for the recipe. The curry turned out to be good. but I feel there was some row taste of onions still in the gravy. should I saute onion-chilly paste for more time? also the paste was smooth and not coarse. does it alter taste or gravy?

  13. make coarse paste, may be the smooth paste is the reason for raw taste...

  14. Turned out well and ate it with chapatis. It was very simple to make. Thanks
