Or simply Reshmi Kabab… or Chicken Malai Kebab… or Murgh Malai Kebabs… they’re all the same! The colour, you ask? Is because I pan-grilled these chicken reshmi kebabs and added a teaspoon of malai (fresh cream) at the end of the cooking process to de-glaze the pan. The chicken kebabs were then rolled in to these pan juices and got coloured. The flavours were simple and delicate nonetheless. For the uninitiated, Chicken Reshmi Kebabs or Murgh Malai Kebabs are ideally lighter i

This recipe was a first for me… as are many other recipes on the blog :) Chicken Terrine is a cheat’s / homemade version of salami (not cured or smoked though). Most of us have chicken salami stocked in the freezer for a lazy Sunday brunch, a quick weekday breakfast sandwich, a no-fuss chicken appetiser with cocktails, a delicious addition to an otherwise plain omelette… the ideas are endless, and Chicken Terrine is a great, quick and easy substitute. Chicken Terrine or homem
Or chicken cooked in raw mango gravy. What’s an Indian summer without mangoes? And when raw mangoes (Kairi) are in season… make the most of it! Kairi Murgh recipe uses raw mango for sour tangy notes – raw mangoes have possibly been used in many lost / traditional Indian recipes, before the available-all-seasons tomatoes came to India. A good amount of green chillies or red chilli powder are added to Kairi Murgh, to balance the tang from the raw mangoes. Slow cooked, caramelis

Junglee maas (mutton) to junglee murgh! Absolutely love the simplicity of this recipe… few ingredients yet such complex flavours from the ghee, garlic and dried whole red chilies. Yes, these are the only ingredients! Besides mutton or chicken ofcourse. And salt. The original / authentic Rajasthani recipe ‘Junglee Maas’ calls for mutton and there’s no real reason to use chicken, except that it makes for a quick appetiser or small plates recipe, which is ready in literally no t
Unusual name… when I heard of this recipe for the first time, I googled the name to check if it actually exists! It does. Chicken changezi seems to be a popular Mughlai recipe from old Delhi. Varied spices yet such mild flavours in a rich curry… of course, I had to try it out. It’s a lengthy recipe to read, yes, but the process of making chicken changezi is not as complicated or time consuming as it reads.

A simple, no-frills recipe of stir-fried chicken with minimal everyday ingredients. If you don't have all the ingredients to make this stir-fried chicken, simply skip that ingredient and go ahead with the recipe. Or substitute it with something else. Like, if you don't have garam masala or chicken masala, use a fresh blend of available whole spices -
