Dhaba Style Chicken Makhani

Presenting here a typical North Indian style Chicken aka Murg Makhani, some juicy, succulent Chicken pieces in a rich Buttery Gravy with the lovely smell of spices and distinct flavor of Kasuri Methi. When I served it to my family, hubby declares that it is of 'Dhaba' standard, hence the name ' Dhaba Style Chicken Makhani'.

Marinate the chicken with ginger, garlic paste, curd, tandoori masala, garam masala powder, chilli powder and salt for one hour. Grill them for 15 minutes in the oven and keep aside.

Add white oil and the butter in a pan. Add whole garam masala. Then add chopped onion with a pinch of sugar and salt and fry till golden brown. 

Add one tsp of ginger paste and chopped green chilli and fry for 5 - 7 minutes over medium heat. Next add chilli powder, chopped tomato, tomato ketchup and turmeric. Fry till the masalas are blended well. 

Now add the grilled chicken and fry continuously till chicken is cooked. you may have to add some hot water, but make sure the gravy is not too watery. When chicken is almost cooked, add the cream and kasuri methi soaked in water. 

Adjust the seasoning. Remove from heat and sprinkle chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with a slice of boiled egg.
