Learn how to make Dal Murgh with our Chef Smita Deo.

Dal Murgh or Dal Chicken is the perfect balance between getting a healthy dose of fibre-filled, nutritious lentils in, as well as satisfying that desire (need) for a cheeky bit of chicken. The recipe involves cooking the dal & chicken separately Once the chicken is halfway done, you add in the dal alongside the water until the chicken is done. Finally, we’ll add the tempering- of beautiful slivers of onions, and dried red chillis. This is a curry to die for! Try it out tonight & let us know how you like it in the comments.
