This one-pot meal is utterly delicious and wholesome
Murghanu Shaak or Gujarati Chicken Curry cooked with vegetables, is chicken marinated in yoghurt and spices and then made into a sweet and savoury curry. Cooked in a broth with onions, ginger, green peppers and potatoes, this chicken curry recipe is as simple as it comes. It is a single-pot dish that can be made entirely in a pressure cooker. Gujarat has a long coastline along the Arabian Sea and thereby abundance of seafood, but historically, due to the state’s close relations with Jainism, a lot of Gujaratis practise vegetarianism. But Gujaratis can rustle up a non-vegetarian dish with just as much panache as any other non-veg loving community. Murghanu Shaak is simply a chicken curry recipe and its ingredients are easily found in most of the Indian kitchens.
This quick chicken curry makes good use of the bounty of flavourful winter vegetables, including potatoes, sweet red carrots, sweet peas, green tomatoes, tender beans, and purple turnips.
