It is the birthday of my dear Hubby and he loves chicken in any form. Naturally it is my duty to feed him some chicken dishes on his Big day, which he never had before. While searching the net for some unique recipe,, I came across Poulamee‘s Salam-E-Murg, and the name struck me instantly. It is more or less a regular chicken recipe, the uniqueness lies on the roasted veggies that is getting added at the end of cooking. The unique aroma of roasted veggies, getting mixed with chicken gives this regular chicken dish a much desired kick.
