Chicken rezala, a traditional chicken recipe in Bengali style made using chicken and some rich ingredients like kaju, khus khus, fried onions and curd.

It is a white rich chicken gravy recipe and is basically a Bangladeshi recipe now usually made by people of Bengal.

chicken rezala

“Rezala” is nothing but regal which defines the dish as very Mughlai and rich and something eaten by the Mughals during that era.

It is usually a Mughlai cuisine made by using rich spices and here we do not use any red chilli powder. We only use green chillies to get the spice flavor and the gravy turns out white by using kaju, khus khus, curd etc…

Murgh rezala does take few steps and directions that should be followed carefully to get a perfect outcome and here in the recipe I have shared every step by step detail carefully.

Chicken can be made in various forms of curries in different regions and this is a very special and restaurant kind of gravy which takes almost all the rich ingredients and to add an aromatic flavor, fried onions too are added which makes the gravy quite rich.

chicken rezala recipe

My blog has already various kinds of chicken recipes and shall be adding many more recipes which are not only curries but various chicken snacks recipes, chicken main course recipes and many more.

Step by step procedure to make chicken rezala recipe:

  1. Firstly boil the masala ingredients separately and then blend all the ingredients into a fine paste.
  2.  Also make sure the onions are fried well.
  3. Make sure the masala paste and the fried onions are kept ready.
  4. The rest of the chicken making procedure is just easy if the above things are handy and kept readily available.

The most important part of the dish is the gravy is basically white and here we do not add any red color ingredients and mostly all white ingredients go into this curry like poppy seeds, yogurt etc…

The spice flavor comes out by adding whole red chillies and green chillies and the fried onions give a sort of creamy white texture to the gravy.

I would suggest my blog readers to do try this variety chicken recipe since it is a very rich kind of chicken gravy that can be served with roti or steamed rice.

I made and tried this recipe for the first time and believe me it has turned out amazing and worth the try with all my efforts and it turned out perfectly the very first time and would love to make the dish again and again.

It goes well with any pulao be it plain pulao or bagara rice or any flavorful rice which can make a good combination for several occasions or during Eid or festivals.

I have written detailed steps on how to make murgh rezala and do leave us your queries regarding the recipe below in the comment box and I shall try to update a video procedure too for this recipe as I update my blog with videos.

Do not worry as every step has been written carefully on how to make the recipe and if one finds any doubt in the recipe procedure please leave your comments below and leave us your queries for us to answer.

Cumin powder is an aromatic and flavorful indian spice used in almost every indian curry be it a vegetarian recipe or a non vegetarian dish.

Cumin powder is commonly called as ‘jeera’ and jeera is the most healthiest indian dry spice with lots and lots of health benefits.

cumin powder recipe

I have already shared coriander powder which is commonly called as dhania powder and both these dry spices are the two most indian spices that are a necessity in every indian kitchen.

Coriander powder and cumin powder both go together in every curry made in Indian cuisine. Cumin powder is also added in most of the indian street food recipes to give a chatpata taste.

These dry spices are anyways readily available in markets but my main motive in sharing this recipe is to make these aromatic spice powders at home.

Making these dry spice powders at home that are home made give real flavors to the curries or gravy recipes and also they amazingly taste good when home made powders are added.

More over whole coriander seeds and cumin seeds are easily available in every grocery store in Indian markets and they are quick and easy to make these powders at home and store them for a long time.

Coriander and cumin have lots of health benefits and I suggest these spices to be added in every veg recipe or a non veg recipe as they give yummy aroma into the curries.

Cumin is very beneficial for health and I have shared some of the healthy recipes with jeera such as jeera water which is a great weight loss drink. Also other recipe that is already shared using jeera is aloo jeera.

We all know that cumin is highly used for cooking and apart from cooking it also has many medicinal benefits as well.

jeera powder recipe

Let us understand some of the health benefits of cumin/jeera and uses:

  1. It is a spice used in the form of ground powder where in the cumin seeds are ground to a fine powder and stored for cooking purposes.
  2.  Not only in cooking but also it is highly used for losing weight by adding cumin in various weight loss drinks in powdered form of by using whole cumin.
  3.  It is highly recommended for weight loss, it also reduces cholesterol levels, aids in treating memory loss problems.
  4. Cumin is also very helpful and useful in treating digestion related ailments and one who suffers problems with indigestion then, using cumin in a drink or in buttermilk aids in treating digestion related problems.
  5.  It is also said to reduce stress related problems and helps in giving one a good proper sleep and also has many healing properties such as it can treat anaemia and also many beauty related stuff.

I have also shared a healthy drink into which cumin powder is added and it is a very common drink in Indian summers consumed by most of the Indians and it is nothing but our very famous chaas recipe or masala chaas.

How to make cumin powder at home or jeera powder at home:

I know most of them must be wondering why such a big article when this spice powder is readily available in markets but here I give you the answer.

The spice powder does not give out as good a taste as made at home and the spices that are made at home are nicely roasted, freshly powdered and stored well without any preservatives.

Using these kind of home made powders should be added into all the dishes made in Indian cuisine and they are highly recommended powders that should be added for good aroma in the curries.

To make this at home we need to use simple tips and tricks and one should be careful in roasting and making a fine powder out of it.

Below are the recipe details into making cumin powder at home.

How to make cumin powder:

cumin powder recipe, jeera powder

A highly used spice mostly used in North Indian cooking and also in south indian cooking.

  • 250 gms cumin seeds/ jeera
  1. Take a non stick wok or a pan, heat it.
  2. Add cumin seeds and dry roast the cumin seeds on low flame.
  3. Keep stirring the cumin seeds/ jeera while roasting them.
  4. If not stirred well, the cumin seeds might get burnt at the bottom and the whole spice tastes burnt.
  5. The cumin seeds give out an aromatic fragrance while getting dry roasted and that is the sign of cumin seeds roasted well.
  6. When the cumin seeds gives aromatic fragrance, switch off the flame and cool them down.
  7. Take a mixer grinder jar, add the roasted cumin seeds into the jar, blend them finely until they are powdered well.
  8. Transfer the cumin powder into an air tight container.
  9. Store the jeera powder and use it for cooking purpose or for medicinal purposes.
  10. It lasts long and can be used for months. 

  11. Use in curries when required.

1. One important tip to know that cumin is roasted well is it starts giving out aroma into the kitchen and too much of roasting burns the cumin and one should be careful while roasting it.
2. If the cumin is roasted longer, the powder gives out a burnt smell and the curries smell burnt and hence be careful.

Beans curry, a green beans curry recipe made in the form of a semi gravy style perfect to be eaten with roti or chapati.

My blog now contains many more recipes made with various veggies and please leave a feedback in the comment box for any further recipe request.

beans-curry-recipe

Beans is commonly called as “phalli” and there are various varieties of beans in our country like cluster beans commonly called as “gavar ki phali”, another common beans variety is flat beans commonly known as “sem ki phali”.

Always beans tastes good if combined with potatoes and we mostly make all the beans recipes with potatoes.

There are many ways to make beans like beans fry, aloo beans recipe etc…which shall be updated soon as I keep writing many more recipes.

Aloo beans is a very good combination while making a curry or while making aloo beans fry.

beans curry for chapati

In this post I have shared a very yummy curry that goes good with either of the main course recipes like roti or steamed rice and one does not need to make any main course dish like dal or curry.

This is a semi gravy recipe into which I have used tomatoes and onions and also I have given flavors of coriander leaves and methi leaves to enhance the flavor of the curry.

Points to remember while making the beans curry:

  1. The curry can be slow cooked in a vessel and one needs to be patient for the beans and aloo to get tender.
  2.  Only beans can be added and if one does not want to add aloo, it can be skipped.
  3. The curry can be pressure cooked, but if given many whistles the curry can become mushy. Be careful while pressure cooking and just give 1 or 2 whistles.

Beans according to me tastes best when stir fried but we also prefer to make in the form of a curry that can serve to many.

Below are the recipe details where I have written step by step details on how to make this curry.

Palak is a very healthy vegetable and so is chicken and one is a green leafy vegetable with lots of iron in it and the other is a non veg which has lots of proteins in it.

Combination of both the main ingredients is a healthy package of iron and proteins which helps in improving iron and also helps in building our body with chicken.

Usually, non veg like meat is basically mixed with many vegetables like potato, any green leafy vegetable, or any vegetable but chicken is combined rarely with vegetables and does not taste good if combined.

If chicken is combined, then it can be used along with green leafy vegetables like gongura/sorrel leaves or spinach leaves/palak.

palak chicken curry

It is very very rarely combined with potato and also chicken is made in green color using pudina or kothmir.

This chicken curry made here is also green and is made using spinach leaves in chicken pieces.

  1. Palak can be pureed separately by boiling the leaves in some salt water and added while making chicken curry.
  2. Palak leaves can be directly added into the chicken and this is a very quick and easy method of making palak chicken and tastes good too.

Masala chai, a spiced indian tea and every Indian is familiar with this hot hot tea which is usually had at any time of the day in Indian households.

‘Tea’ Is commonly referred to as ‘chai‘ at Indian households and people drinking tea everywhere is a common sight in India and every part of India.

masala chai recipe

There are various kinds of tea that are usually made like ginger tea, cutting chai, masala chai, normal chai, irani chai commonly made in street corners.

Chai is something that almost every Indian can’t do without and to have a great start of the day we all love to enjoy hot cup of tea or coffee along with some chai biscuits.

I am very fond of tea and would love to try out various kinds of tea. There are also some various flavors that are usually available in markets like tulsi flavored tea powder, ginger flavor, herbal tea and these are ready made available tea powders that do not require to take extra efforts to separately make them at home.

But , not all places sell these spiced flavors of tea powder and we all usually get to buy basic tea powders in several brands. However, making freshly spiced tea at home is totally different from having it on streets.

The chai made at home tastes even more better than the chai consumed on the streets.

masala tea spices

In India, every street corner has a chai stall and masala chai flavored tea sold is one among those flavors which is suitable to be had during heavy rains or winters.

This chai is made with a specially made masala tea powder at home and it can be stored for a couple of days and used while making masala tea at home when ever required.

How to make this spiced masala tea:

To make this chai recipe, one needs to first make use of various Indian spices like cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon, pepper and dry ginger, powder them together and use it while making tea.

Masala chai is usually made with water, milk, sugar, basic tea powder and masala tea powder which are all mixed together and boiled well.

All the spices that are used to make this masala tea have lots of health benefits and when we think of masala tea the only thing that comes to my mind is of its many medicinal benefits.

Although, there are many stores that sell ready made masala tea powder but, I would suggest to make it at home and store as it is very easy to make and healthy as well.

Benefits of masala chai:

  1. If the tea is made without milk and using sugar, then one can have it as a miracle weight loss drink.
  2.  It aids in digestion and good for tummy related problems.
  3.  The tea uses dry ginger into it and dry ginger has many benefits like it helps in getting rid of cold, and cloves help in getting rid of cough.
  4.  The masala tea helps in preventing cancer, boosts energy, aids in digestion.
  5.  If sugar is skipped, then it is a very beneficial tea for those suffering from diabetes.

masala tea powder

Having masala chai is not only good for health as it uses many health beneficial indian spices but also keeps our body warm and a perfect drink to be consumed during winters and monsoons.

Indians like to drink a hot cup of tea during mornings and also love to consume tea in the evenings with some hot hot pakodas or any instant snacks recipes.

Below I have shared the miracle healthy hot drink recipe that one should consume often which is very beneficial to our body and can prevent us from various ailements like cold, cough, nausea as well as prevents us from various diseases.
