Dum Ka Murgh is a slow cooked chicken curry flavored with whole spices, cashew paste, and yogurt. The word Dum is an Urdu word for steaming, but commonly Dum is used to define the slow cooking method, where pot is tightly sealed with dough or tight-fitting lid to lock the aroma of spices within the pot and for the meat to absorb all the juicy flavors from the curry. This method was favorite of royal cooks across India and has been passed on from one generation of cooks to another since Mughal era or maybe before though in modern day kitchen it is not possible to cook curries for hours over the wooden fire but oven or slow cooker can be used for the same.

The reason to make this special curry was we made it to the Runner’s Up in the category of “Best Recipe Blog” at Food Blogger Association Awards, 2014, the good news came on 2 Nov 2014, first of it’s kind recognition I got for my work and I started jumping with joy all over the house, Momo gave me one amused look but he understood his looks not going to spoil my celebratory mood. Sometimes it feels great when your work receives formal appreciation; it acts as a boost to continue the journey ahead with new vitality, zeal, and passion. After continuous rain in past few weeks there is sudden temperature drop in the city, which means drastic change in our food preferences, we have already started craving for soups, stews, Gajar ka Halwa and Khus ka Doodh and I am so glad bidding goodbye to rainy clouds which made our daily routine like soupy bowl of ramen noodles, all watery and slurpy.
