Mughlai Chicken is a rich, decadent, restaurant-style, brown-coloured chicken gravy belonging to the Mughal era. A bowl of this Mughlai Chicken with naan or rice will surely have you licking off your plates!
When we say Mughal cuisine, we think of rich and thick curries, pilaf, biryani, cashews, and apricots. All in all, Mughai food embodies a royal, refined, sophisticated, and extravagant culinary art. Mughlai cuisine has evolved greatly, from the times of Babur to Bahadur Shah Zafar. Three centuries of Mughal reign permanently altered the landscape of the Indian cuisine. Now, we have Mughal dishes on the menus of almost all hotels serving a North Indian fare.
Although preparing the authentic Mughal Chicken is a bit tedious, the outcome is absolutely divine and pleasing to your taste buds. Cream and yogurt lend richness to this gravy and make it thicker. Throwing in spices, such as cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom, and the paste of almonds give you a fragrant, distinct, and flavourful dish. Eat this comforting Mughal Chicken with naan, kulcha, or steamed rice and I promise you will be transported to heaven.
