Yogurt Chicken / Dahi Murg

Dahi Murg or Yogurt Chicken was a hit in my first try itself. It was my 2nd Wedding Anniversary and was expecting to make it more special with my new recipe. And, you wouldn’t believe that this recipe made my day. When I chose this recipe, I was little worried about the combination of yogurt with chicken. But, surprisingly this was a ‘WOW’!

This recipe was running in my mind for almost a month and I was waiting for an occasion. An occasion came and I knew that this is the day to try this out. The day began in my kitchen with gathering of all ingredients on my kitchen table and rechecking it thrice. I was very keen not to miss out any one of them which, I hadn’t.

Yogurt Chicken was a ‘success’ or you can call it ‘super success’ for my day. So, I bring in this recipe to share among you for YOUR SPECIAL DAY.


1/2 Kg Chicken (boneless), 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder, 1 1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste, 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder, 1/4 tsp Pepper Powder,1/2 tsp Sugar,1/2 Garam Masala, 1/4 tsp Chicken Masala, 1 Cup Yogurt (100 ml), 1 Onion(sliced), 1 Tomato(puree), 2 tbsp Oil, Coriander Leaves, Salt to Taste

How to Prepare:

In a bowl, add chicken masala, chilli powder, 2 tsp yogurt, 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and marinate the cleaned chicken pieces in this mixture. Keep this  in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan, fry sliced onions till golden brown. Add the remaining ginger garlic paste, tomato puree and slit green chillies. Sauté this for 3 – 4 minutes till the oil separates. Add the marinated chicken, water and cook covered till the chicken is tender. Now, add the beaten yogurt and sugar. Stir occasionally on low flame till the gravy thickens.
