Dum Ka Murgh is a slow cooked chicken curry flavored with whole spices, cashew paste and yogurt. The word Dum is an Urdu word for steaming but commonly Dum is used to define the slow cooking method, where pot is tightly sealed with dough or tight fitting lid to lock the aroma of spices within pot and for the meat to absorb all the juicy flavors from the curry. This method was favorite of royal cooks across India and has been passed on from one generation of cooks to another since Mughal era or maybe before though in modern day kitchen it is not possible to cook curries for hours over wooden fire but oven or slow cooker can be used for the same.
