Lasooni Murgh (Garlic Flavored Spicy Chicken)

Rated as 4.08 out of 5 Stars

"This traditional Indian dish was suggested to me by my friend from Mumbai. It is creamy and full of flavor and should be served over some kind of carb (rice, potatoes, naan) to absorb and dissimulate the spice. It can be easily done in a vegetarian version by substituting the chicken with potatoes, broccoli, spinach and/or paneer. I garnish it with cilantro leaves and grated cheese."

  1. Stir together the yogurt, garlic paste, lemon juice, garam masala, white pepper, and saffron; season to taste with salt. Toss the chicken in the yogurt and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 to 12 hours.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Toss in the cumin seeds and allow to cook until fragrant, 20 to 30 seconds. Add the chicken and brown in the oil. Discard any remaining marinade. Turn heat to medium-low, cover, and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Pour in the cream and heat through. Serve immediately.

Easy and delicious! I marinated it 24 hrs. The next day, dinner was done in a snap.

It was a big hit! I made this with some modifications and it turned out really delicious. Everyone liked it. I used 200 g of plain yogurt instead of 400 g. I used 2 cloves of garlic instead ...

It's a simple chicken dish easy to prepare.

Really easy to put together, it satisfies the curry craving.

Excellent! This was worth spending $15 on saffron. The kids complained that it stunk, but they were surprised at how good it tasted. We will definately make this again.

It tasted good.

This is a very tasty dish, though I added a bit of cayenne pepper to give it just a bit more kick. Definitely going to keep this recipe handy. It smells wonderful, too!
