What kind of chicken should I use for dhaba style chicken curry?
Using bone-in chicken lends the meat a richer, gamey flavour. That is in keeping with how this dish was traditionally made, using free-roaming birds.
A generous hand with spices, including turmeric, coriander, cumin, and cinnamon, plus plenty of chillies, leaves this dish intensely flavorful and fiery.
You can also make this curry with boneless chicken. But bone-in chicken yields the best curry as the juices from the bones mix with the curry making it richer in flavour.
Most traditional Indian households use the whole chicken that is cut to more or less equal sizes. A typical curry cut divides a broiler chicken into 12 pieces.
The curry is made with all the pieces of chicken including thighs, breasts etc. But if you are choosy you can use whatever you like. This works very well.
Is this the standard chicken curry recipe?
Chicken or Murgh curry, though finds its origins in India, is now a commonly found entree globally. That is why there is no standard recipe to make it. Even in India, there are many variations to this recipe because of cultural/regional influence that no two recipes are alike. And, then there is the Cook’s hand too.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
