Well..so much for planning to post a recipe every day huh? Just got crazy busy with one thing or the other and I had to abandon the blog. Was on a movie marathon this weekend and now I'm totally tipsy on a massive cocktail, but I had to post this before I hit the sack.
I first had achaari murgh last weekend at a Hyderabadi restaurant. We went there to have Dum biryani which was horrible and ended up liking the achaari murgh instead. Well we decided on that after quite a hiatus, but nevertheless enjoyed the achaari murgh a lit. So I then thought I'd recreate it at home and went on a ballistic search. Google threw me a lot of recipes, but I settled on the one Soma of eCurry posted on her blog. Even though the taste wasn't anywhere close to the one I had at the restaurant and the colour wasn't as red (gorgeous) as hers, we thoroughly enjoyed the curry and I'm sure I'll be making it again. Thanks a lot Soma.
Notes: I followed her recipe to the dot, except I halved it and I didn't have nigella seeds with me, so avoided that as well. I am not too sure if that changed the flavouring a whole lot.
I also used vegetable oil instead of mustard oil
Puréed 3 tomatoes instead of grating them or using the paste.
