Chicken changezi recipe is a variety chicken recipe which has some mughlai flavor in it. It is an ancient recipe originated from the era of Changez khan(Genghis khan).
This is a delicious chicken recipe and is a rich recipe made using rich ingredients. It has a gravy consistency which is suitable to have it with rotis or parathas.
I made this recipe for the first time and instantly liked its taste as it is less spicy and has rich taste to the recipe.
I have posted every tried and tested chicken recipe on the blog and most of the recipes are made along with the videos and all the recipes are mind blowing and would like to update more and more chicken recipes.
This recipe is not known to many and I would like to share more details on this chicken recipe through my blog.
It has great flavors, spices, richness to the whole gravy. I have added cream, yogurt, tomato puree, fried onion paste along with dry fruits paste into the recipe and over all this has made the whole recipe quite rich.
While making chicken changezi, generally chicken is roasted separately but here, I have made it into a one pot dish and it has turned out as similar to the normal method of making chicken changezi.
I usually make some of the chicken recipes as one pot recipes and not separately which turn out well and also helps in cooking the chicken and the masala gravy perfectly.
The main masala of changezi recipe is of onion and kaju paste sauteed in oil or ghee and there are many royal chicken recipes such as chicken shahi korma, mutton korma or chicken rezala which use nuts to give the main base to the gravy...
To this gravy ingredients like milk, cream, yogurt, tomato puree are added to give a gravy like consistency.
The chicken is roasted well and all these masala paste are added and cooked well to form a thick gravy suitable to make during several occasions.
I shall update with many more chicken recipes as I keep blogging and hopefully I add them along with videos too and would love to hear feedback from my blog readers which encourage me to post more recipes.
