Dogri Chicken Masala
Kashmiri Chicken Curry is a homestyle chicken curry from the North Indian state of Kashmir I learned on my trip to India.
Several months ago when I was visiting my blogger friend Pradnya in Mumbai, she was invited to a blogger event at Renaissance Hotel, Mumbai. As a fellow blogger and her house guest, she managed to include me in the invite as well. You can read more about my experience and the event here, but we participated in a contest where we had to guess what primary spices were used. I failed miserably, but I was glad my host Pradnya won.
Today, especially as Diwali is being celebrated the world over, I am reminded of the wonderful days I spent in Mumbai. To vicariously bring me back to those days, I am presenting one of the recipes by the specially selected home chefs that were at the event to highlight regional Indian cuisine – Dogri Chicken Masala. Kashmiri cuisine is one of my faves and I have already presented several Kashmiri dishes. If you would like to add to this chicken to build a complete meal, try Wadi Curry, Zarda Pulao & Saffron Tea
This is my adaptation of a Kashmiri recipe by Sayantani Mazumdar. With all the warm smoky spices, this hearty chicken curry is perfect for the season as the temps are starting to cool, although it is unseasonably warm today 🙂
