Mughlai cuisine

Is anyone here a fan of the royal style of Indian cooking, specially the Persian-influenced flavours of the Mughlai kitchens? I know I am and I wondered if anyone had any sources or recipes to share? I have some particular favourites. Decadent, colourful and creamy, it's truly wonderful!

I have never heard of that style. I'll let you know once I've checked it out but that picture sure looks yummy!

I can't remember the exact recipe, but it went something like this:

Marinate chicken breast pieces in yoghurt, a touch of saffron dissolved in milk, salt and white pepper for a few hours.

Heat ghee and fry the chicken. Remove the chicken and add a bit more ghee or oil if needed, add cinnamon, cumin, cardamom and cloves and fry to release the flavour. Add onions and ginger-garlic paste and fry until he onions are golden. Add a touch of water to stop the spice powder burning and add coriander powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala and some cashews. Fry for a little to release the flavours and then blend this into a smooth gravy. Return to the heat and add in chicken. Simmer until almost done, then add cream and crushed kasoori methi powder. Add a touch of cream, let it heat through then add the last of the saffron/milk infusion just before serving. Then, of course, garnish with rose petals :)

Oh yes I do love it.
I got a recipe for Chicken Tikka Muglai style form Indian friend called Dimple and the saffron instead of turmeric and the amount of fine spices just elevates it to a new level. I truly love it.

Since my husband is British we try to eat curry ones a week, for him it is comfort food.

I introduced my wife to Indian food and she actually asks for it probably about once a week, too. Mughlai cuisine is one of favourites because she's a fan of creamier dishes full of nuts. I don't mind making them!

Though I might make some chicken mince kebabs with mint and nutmeg at the weekend. Yum.

My edit button seems to have gone, but here are a couple of other Mughlai dishes:

Chicken do pyaza ("onions twice" but apparently also a play on the name of the couriter Mullah Do-Piyaza)


Maharani panch rattan. Emperor Aurangzeb was a vegetarian. Perhaps he enjoyed this dal!
