No one can describe the feel and the flavors of this magnificent dish until you have tried it once. Being a die-hard fan of chicken cuisine I finally got a chance to taste it and share its flavor through this write-up.
If you’re an avid food lover and want to try the authentic cuisine from the era of the royal empire then Murgh Musallam recipe should be at the top of your menu.



Murgh musallam is a traditional Indian chicken dish originating from the Mughal era. The dish is prepared with a whole chicken that’s stuffed with eggs and slow-cooked in a rich gravy. The chicken is marinated in a combination of lemon juice, salt, and chili powder.

Hard-boiled eggs are mixed with sautéed onions, ginger, garlic, garam masala, chili powder, coriander, and mint, then stuffed in the cavity of the chicken. Once stuffed, the chicken is roasted in a gravy consisting of onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, turmeric, cumin, garam masala, yogurt, saffron, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, and oil.

Murgh musallam is served on a platter, with the gravy poured over the chicken. It’s recommended to garnish the dish with slivered almonds and accompany it with rice on the side.
