Who doesn't love chicken? Whether it's butter chicken, chicken pasta, chicken momos or chicken pizza, chicken is our favorite dish for any occasion! The wonderful thing is that Indian cuisine contains some of the tastiest and most aromatic chicken dishes. Desi masala like garam masala, ginger garlic paste, red chili powder and more give us vibrant curries with delicious and different flavors. If you are looking for something sweet we have creamy dishes like Safed Maas and Murgh Malaiwala and if you want something spicy we have a plethora of recipes! One of those spicy chicken curries is the bemisal murgh.
Chicken Bemisal is a rich preparation that includes both pieces of chicken and ground chicken or keema. It's a great party dish designed to wow your guests. It is an adaptation of the Moti Mahal plate. I made some modifications to adapt it as per my palette.
