Achari Chicken (Achari Murgh)
Achari Chicken (aka Achari Murgh) is a fabulous Pakistani recipe that’s made with tomatoes, achari masala and yogurt. It’s perfect served with roti, rice or even poori (yum!), with a side of Indian Kachumber Salad.
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 450 grams boneless chicken cut into bite size pieces
- 2 tablespoons ginger garlic paste
- 4 medium tomatoes pureed in a blender
- 1 1/2 tablespoons achar gosht masala I used Shan masala
- A little bit of chopped coriander
- A little bit of julienned ginger
Heat oil in a wok or pot, and then add the chicken. Also add the ginger garlic paste.
Cook until the chicken changes color (in about 5 minutes or so).
Add the pureed tomatoes and the achar gosht masala.
Cook for a few minutes on high heat.
Then lower the heat, cover the wok and cook for 15 minutes, occasionally stirring.
Remove the lid from the wok, and cook for another 2 minutes until you can see the masala is ready with the oil separating from the curry.
Garnish with chopped coriander and julienned ginger.
Serve with roti or rice.
