Dum Ka Murgh - (Dum Chicken - Hyderabadi Style)


          Here is my healthy version of a very popular Hyderabadi recipe of Chicken, cooked in the Dum style. It is a very simple and an easy preparation as all the ingredients are first marinated and simmered away, covered, on a very low flame till done. So there is no sauteing required.  

          It is a Moghlai dish, which is actually very rich. But I kept the fat to a minimum and minus the cream. This awesome delicacy is full of flavours and is relished with either khushka Biryani, plain steamed rice, naan or tandori roti. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 750 gms. chicken on bones
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp. coriander powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder

  • 1" cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 green cardamons
  • 5-6 cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 10 peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup paste of nuts (Cashews, Pistachios, walnuts & raisins)
