Mughlai Murgh Kebabs Recipe
When Mughal king Babur invaded India No one knew they are going to change the pages of history books, and they did not change by the sword, they changed it by creativity, they changed the look of India by invention, and India was never same again. The Mughal era gave Indian subcontinent not only some of the world's best architectural sites but also gave us some of the best food recipes. Mughals loved their architect and they loved their food and it is one of the reason we are enjoying some of the best dishes today. All the Mughlai or shahi dishes are the gifts of Mughal era.
Mughals brought Persian, Arabian and Turkish recipes with Afghani influence and added Indian spices to make such an beautiful recipes. The recipe we are going to share today is called Mughlai Murgh Kebabs. It is one of the best Mughlai side dish, main ingredients used for this dish are Chicken and spices.
They (Mughals) made their own recipes by mixing Iranian, Indian and Afghan recipes with Turkish touch and today you can taste any of their recipes and you will love it.
