Murgh ki Nihari

Murgh ki Nihari is a classic delicacy of boned cubes of chicken simmered for hours and prepared in a light mustard oil flavored gravy of myriad spices. The word Nihari is derived from the Urdu word 'nihar', which means 'morning' and ‘murgh’ meaning 'chicken'. This is a very popular breakfast dish amongst the Muslim community both in Pakistan and in north India. The dish has a robust flavor of red chilies, paprika, onion seeds, garlic, clove, cumin, bay leaf and black pepper.
