Murgh / Murg Musallam ( Whole Chicken Stuffed With Spices)
Murgh musallam is traditional Muslim / Mughal recipe which has been popularized across the world now. The name comes from its style of cooking. Murgh stands for chicken and musallam is filling of masala. Hence murgh musallam actually means chicken filled with masala (spices). It is rich in protein and animal fat. Just Like Mughal Biryani, Murg Musallam has variations in taste and ingredients. This is one of the festive recipes which I learned from my Mother in law. My late father in law used to like eating....eating good food and trying out cuisines of all regions and all culture. My mother in law sometimes tell me stories of how he used to take the recipes from his trader friends from different community and used to guide her in cooking them at home. This is how my Mother in law learned cooking Hilsa and Chingri Malai curry. In those days usage of internet was very limited and searching these recipes from the net was a distance dream. This is the reason why I find her recipes always tasty, because these were learned from people who were experts and were habituated in cooking these delicacies.
