Shahi Chicken is one of the most popular and favourite recipes among non-vegetarian lovers, both adults and kids alike.
For making Shahi Chicken, first you need to prepare the marinade, which includes ingredients such as thick curd, dhania powder, jeera powder, ginger paste, garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt. Next the marinade needs to be applied properly on the chicken pieces – either 2 pounds boneless and skinless chicken or 6 chicken pieces - for 4-5 hrs.
Next, add onions in heated oil and fry them before adding poppy seed powder, cashew nut powder, and tomato paste and fry this mixture for 3 minutes. The chicken masala goes in next, and needs to be mixed properly, with water being added when the chicken dries. The chicken needs to be cooked on low flame for at least 20-25 minutes or until its done, while being stirred.
Mix saffron with milk and add it to the chicken, while keeping it on low flame for 2 minutes. Garnish with fried onions and chopped dhania leaves and enjoy.
