Murgh Do Pyaza

We are having a heavy snowfall here, obviously am bit lazy coz of this super chilled weather. Two days back, i was saying that its been a while am not sick, but today i woke up with a severe throat pain,fever,running nose  etc and the list goes on. My sunday lunch was a hot peppery rasam with mint thuvaiyal, as i dont able to smell or feel the taste. Wish me a speedy recovery friends, coz i dont like to sit in idle and i have loads of stuffs to do.

Coming this rich looking chicken onion curry, i prepared few days back for our lunch and served with simple jeera pulao for our lunch and with simple oats chappathis for our dinner. This murgh do pyaza, is one of the well known chicken curry, this curry is definitely super rich,creamy and an excellent side dish to serve along with mildly flavoured pulao or rotis.With wonderful flavour, this murgh do pyaza will definitely satisfy your tastebuds.With an incredible combination of onions,spices and chicken, this spicy curry can be served on all occasions.


1kg Chicken (cut as medium size pieces)
3nos Onions (big & sliced lengthwise)
1tbsp Ginger-garlic paste
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Garam masala powder

1tsp Chilly powder
2nos Green Chillies (slit opened)
1tbsp Coriander powder
1cup Tomato puree
10nos Cashew nuts
1cup Yogurt
