Rajasthani cuisine is heavily influenced by the harsh desert climate and scarcity of water, which has led to the development of dishes that are both flavorful and nutritious.
One of the most popular dishes in Rajasthani cuisine is Dal Baati Churma, which is a combination of lentils, wheat balls, and a sweet, crushed wheat dish. Another staple dish is laal maas, a spicy mutton curry that is made with red chilli powder and yoghurt.
Rajasthani cuisine also features a variety of dishes, such as Gatte ki Sabzi, Murgh Banjara, Murgh Banjara Kabab, and Ker Sangri.
What is Banjara Murgh?
Banjara Murgh is a flavourful and aromatic dish that originates from the Banjara community in India. The Murgh Banjara recipe comprises chicken that is marinated in a mixture of spices, yoghurt, and lemon juice, and then cooked in a tomato-based sauce. The result is a delicious and comforting dish that is perfect for any occasion.
In this Banjara Murgh recipe, the Murgh Banjara Masala is the showstopper. Murgh Banjara Masala is a combination of Roasted peanuts, yoghurt, amchur powder, chilli powder, fresh coriander, vinegar, and mustard oil. All these spices in the marinade give the chicken a wonderful flavour and tenderness. The tomato-based sauce adds a nice tanginess and depth of flavour to the dish.
Making Murgh Banjara, the traditional way
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts are typically used in the Banjara Murgh recipe in most Rajasthani kitchens. Experts say that the meat should be cut into small, bite-sized pieces for optimal flavour and texture. Get juicy, tender, pre-cleaned and cut Chicken at Licious!
