دیگچی میں بناسپتی گھی کو درمیانی آنچ پر دو سے تین منٹ کے لیے ہلکا سا گرم کر کے پیاز سنہرا فرائی کر لیں-

پھر ادرک٬ لہسن اور کالی مرچ ڈال کر ایک منٹ تک فرائی کریں اور ٹماٹر ڈال کر اتنی دیر پکائیں کہ اچھی طرح گل جائیں-

نمک٬ دھنیا٬ زیرہ٬ ہلدی اور چکن ڈال کر اتنی دیر بھونیں کہ بناسپتی علیحدہ سے نظر آنے لگے-

چنے ڈال کر دو پیالی پانی ڈال دیں اور ہلکی آنچ پر دس سے بارہ منٹ تک پکائیں

Many peoples make murgh gravy and the cholay both are separate in the bowl but for the good taste it is necessary to make it together while boiling chanay in the separate bowl, it enhance the taste.

Murgh Choley is the only dish I do not like to eat. Give me Choley gravy without the addition of Chicken in it I can eat it but not with Chicken.

Before mixing chany in the bowl of chicken is it necessary to boiled it? Here I see that in the recipe when you prepare the chicken gravy, you put some more water in the bowl with chanay and cook just ten minutes.

The pieces of chicken which I use in this recipe, which size is suitable for it? Is it boneless chicken necessary or we use any chicken?

Murgh Cholay is as same as Chanay Cholay Chicken. I dont like such dishes that include chicken and cholay.
