Dum ka Murgh is also popularly known as Lagan ka Murgh in Hyderabad which is actually slow cooked marinaded chicken in cashew and poppy gravy. The chicken is marinaded in curd/yogurt and spices and later slow cooked which gives a rich color and texture to the gravy. Dum ka Murgh is one of the most favorite chicken dish in my family and I often make when i have guests at home. Garnished with cashews chunks and coriander, Dum ka Murgh goes best when served with Roomali Roti, Mandey or Butter Naan.
