Murgir Korma (Chicken Curry - Bengali Style)


          This delicious Bengali style chicken curry cannot get more simpler than this. It just needs some marination and then slow cooked till done. So it involves minimum effort with maximum flavour. Relish it with plain rice, plain Biryani, pulao, naan, tandori roti or plain chapatti. To prepare this delicacy, please check below a step by step guide with pictures.
