Don’t worry if you want to prepare Murgir Mangsho'r Jhol delicious at home, because if you already know the trick then this dish can be used as an extraordinary special treat.

To begin with this particular recipe, we must prepare a few components. You can cook Murgir Mangsho'r Jhol using 29 ingredients and 12 steps. Here is how you can achieve it.

This dish is from East India, Bengal. The state is just a border away from Bangladesh. It is quite confusing as Bengalis living in India are Indian and Bengalis living in Bangladesh are Bangladeshis. Are you scratching your head already? The Bengalis living in India are mostly Hindus while the Bengalis residing in Bangladesh are mostly Muslims. Either way, Bengali is ethnicity.

With that outta the way, let's talk about this dish. Jhol is what the Bengalis call a spicy and flavorful stew or sauce. Are you ready to scratch your head again? When the English colonized India, they called every stews, sauces and gravies "curry". Yes, the term "curry" is invented by the English. Here's another head-scratching fact: There are quite a lot of Bengalis who migrated to Singapore centuries ago. They brought this famous household dish with them. Yogurt wasn't vastly available back in that day and age, so it was replaced with coconut milk. It has evolved to what Singaporeans know and love as Chicken Curry today.

The mistake which a lot people do is to cook the potatoes and different cuts of chicken at the same time. Each of which has different cooked timing. The best is to use the same cuts of chicken and to parboil the potatoes beforehand before adding into the stew or jhol. This isn't your typical Chicken Curry. It isn't greasy and blend; but rather, stacking layers of flavors and succulent tender potatoes and chicken. I really hope you will give this recipe a try.
