Kokur Yakhni is a popular Kashmiri Non Veg dish made with Chicken (kokur) slow cooked in yogurt and typically flavored with Kashmiri spices and lot of dry mint as a garnish. The aroma of Kokur Yakhni is simply amazing and truly exotic, the aroma speaks a lot for the dish even while it is cooking. The curry is all made with yogurt and is enjoyed with rice a lot.
Kokur Yakhni has a very important place in Kashmiri Wazwan and is made to serve special guests on every special occasions. Tender chicken pieces dunked in a yogurt curry with a rich flavor of fennel and dry mint is something one can never forget once tasted. I personally once got an opportunity to visit Kashmir, luckily had my Kashmiri friend along so the stay was even more comfortable and luxurious. That was when i had first tasted this delicacy and trust me this is the best chicken curry you would have ever tasted specially if you are a yogurt lover. Thanks to my friend Fahoor Mufti for introducing me to Kashmiri Food and also sharing her traditional recipe with me. This post goes out to you my friend. Hugs!
