This dish is a part of Mughlai Cuisine from the province of Awadh which is now very famous in UP and Delhi. Murgh Makhani is a dish which is certainly different from this dish, flavoured by Punjabi Cuisine. The Mughlai Cuisine often requires arduous amount of time and labour, which can take days for preparing a particular dish. But I prepared it in very easy way just within 15 to 20 minutes in microoven and it is mouth-watery and one of my favorite chicken recipe, a great dish indeed.


500 gm Boneless Chicken, Cut into 1” Cubes
100 gm Hung Curd
50 ml Fresh Cream ( I Used Amul Cream)
1 tsp Fenugreek Seeds (Methi)
1 tbsp Dried Fenugreek Leaves (Kasoori Methi)
2 tbsp Garlic Paste
1 tbsp Green Chili Paste
1 tsp Freshly Pounded Garam Masala Powder
1 tsp Kashmiri Red Chili Powder
3 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Butter
½  tsp Sugar (for flavor)
2 tbsp Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves
Salt to Taste


Wash chicken pieces nicely and make those pat dry. Now marinate chicken with curd, green chilli paste, garlic paste, dried fenugreek leaves and salt. Refrigerate the marinated chicken for 4-5 hours (I prefer to keep marination for overnight).
Now take a micro oven safe bowl, pour oil on it and micro for 2 minutes at 100% power. Add fenugreek seeds in it, stir once and micro it for another 2 minutes.
Pour marinated chicken in it. Fold well. Cover and micro for 4 minutes at 100%. Open the lid and add red chili powder, stir nicely.  Again cover and micro for 4 minutes at 100%.
Add coriander leaves and give a nice stir. Cover and micro for another 2 minutes at 100%. Keep it in 5 minutes stand time.

Just before serving, add fresh cream and micro for 2 minutes uncovered at 100%.
Serve warm with hot phulkas or  parathas or naan or any rice dish. It is simply yummy!!!

Hi My Dear Friends,

I thought a blog would be an efficient way to store several recipes with theirs pictures, which I can share with my friends and other family members. When I started this food blog a year ago, my intention was to post daily, but I ended up with just 220 posts, still I am really happy with that. Today also I am a learner only, I wish to learn more and more. During this 1 year, I have visited many many food blogs with wonderful amazing new recipes to try, I felt I have been invitied so many lovely kitchens of my new dear friends whom I have met.

Tons of thanks to my subscribers, regular readers, co-blogger friends for in timing of visiting and reading my space, cooking your way through some of my favourite recipes and leaving your valuable feed back along the way. Your appreciation motivates me to further progress and improve 'Sanoli's Kitchen'.

So friends, celebrating this first anniversary with yummilicious "Murgh Tangri Kabab", a very delicious grilled chicken dish. If you try it once, trust me, it will be your next party menu surely. It has a different taste than other chicken dishes, an irresistible chicken recipe as starter of meal. Tangri kababs are nothing but grilled chicken legs along with thighs. Luciously juicy and tender on the inside, where as they are coated with a scumptious flavourful marinade from the outside.

4 Chicken Legs (with thigh)
1/2 tbsp White Pepper Powder
1/2 tbsp Black Pepper Powder
1 tsp Ginger Paste
1 tsp Garlic Paste
150 gm Hanged Plain Yogurt (Curd)
1 tsp Garam Masala Powder
1/3 tsp Saffron Strands
2-3 tbsps Olive Oil
2 tsps Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Chaat Masala
Salt to taste

Wash the chicken pieces and make it pat dry.

Now make deep cuts on the thicker flesh of the chicken pieces upto the bone part with the tip of your knife. Make sure the marination will enter inside the chicken pieces.

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients (except saffron) nicely. 

Marinate chicken pieces in that mixture and refrigerate for atleast two hours. (I refrigerated the marinated chicken for overnight)

Take out the marinated chicken from refrigerator, sprinkle with the strands of saffron.

Preheat oven to 200 C for 10 minutes. Arrange chicken pieces on the grilled rack, sprinkle little olive oil on the top of the chicken. Now grill for 25 minutes. Turn the other side of chicken legs in between (after 15 minutes). Switch off the oven. Keep it as it is inside the oven for another 5-7 minutes.

Take out from oven. Sprinkle little lemon juice and chaat masala on the top.

Serve immediately by garnishing green salad, onion rings and lemon wedges. Enjoy!!!

'Nan Khatai' is nothing but eggless cookie, very famous in India and Pakistan. Cute looking short bread cookies are melt-in-mouth. They are very rich, crispy and buttery. These nan khatais are absolute delight with a cup of piping hot tea or coffee. The cookies are really simple, easy to bake and perfect in taste. So lets get started....

1 Cup All Purpose Flour / Wheat Flour
2 tbsps Corn Starch (optional)
1/2 Cup / 115 gm Unsalted Butter, at room temperature (or clarified butter)
1/2 Cup Confectioners Sugar (or powdered sugar)
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Cardamom Powder
1/8 tsp Salt
Few Almonds & Pistachios, chopped (for garnishing)


Mix confectioners sugar with butter.

Mix butter and sugar with a spoon, until light and fluffy. It takes approximately 1&1/2 minutes.

Sieve all purpose flour with baking soda. Mix salt in it. Now pour flour, salt and baking soda into the butter-sugar mixture.

Add 1/2 tsp cardamom powder in it.

Beat it again till it incorporated well. First the mixture would resemble bread crumbs.

Slowly knead it in a smooth dough.

Make small gooseberry sized balls (I made 24 nos.) and make sure balls don't have any crack on their outer surface. Place the balls on a alluminium foil lined tray with space of 2" apart. Put some horizontal mark on each ball with the tip of your knife.
Press them down with pistachios and almonds slices on the top and flatten them very slightly.

Preheat oven to 170 C / 325 F for 10 minutes. Place the baking tray at the center of the oven. Bake for 18 minutes. Remove it from the oven, let it cool down for 5 minutes on the cookie tray.

Now remove them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

Then store them in air-tight container.

Serve it with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy it anytime!!!

"Galda Chingri Bhape" is an authentic Bengali Recipe, which is prepared in every household since ages. It goes best with warm steamed rice, but some people serve it with pulao too. Pungent taste of mustard paste with mustard oil makes it more appealing. Soft meat of this scampi has a very distinct flavour if cooked perfectly, little sweet in taste, it is just mouth-melting!

1&1/2 kgs Indian Scampi / Tiger Prawns (galda chingri)
3/4 Cup Plain Yogurt (thick curd)
1&1/2 tsps Turmeric Powder
2 tsp Green Chillies Paste
6-8 Green Chillies (or as per taste), cut in slits
1/2 Cup Grated Coconut
3 tbsps Poppy Seeds Paste
6 tbsps Mustard Paste
6-8 tbsps Mustard Oil
Salt to taste

Clean and wash the tiger prawns. In a microwave safe bowl, marinate prawns with turmeric powder and salt. Keep aside for 15-30 minutes.

Add mustard paste, green chilli paste, poppy seeds paste, coconut and salt to the prawn mix. Now add yogurt and mustards oil in it. Mix it well. Arrange green chillies on the top.

Place the bowl in microwave. Micro at 100% MW power for 5 minutes.

Take out the bowl from the oven now, turn the prawns in the bowl to expose other sides. Adjust salt. Microwave for another 5 minutes at 100% MW power. Switch off the oven, keep it on stand time for 5 minutes more.

Serve hot with plain rice or pulao, its yummilicious!!!
