Ramzan Recipe: Murgh Musallam

April 10, 2023 13:39 IST

Several Indian spices come together to create Murgh Musallam, a Middle Eastern delicacy, which was once served to the sultans of Delhi.

Chef Narayan Dutta Sharma marinates the chicken in ginger, garlic, lemon juice, yoghurt and garam masala, before stuffing it with half-cooked rice and peas.

He later bastes it with a spice mixture, bakes it in a water bath and serves it garnished with saffron and chopped coriander. 

Chef Sharma once worked at Delhi Durbar and perhaps this Mughlai recipe was picked up duirng his tenure there.
