Chicken Bhartha

Chicken Bhartha is a slow cooked rendition of chicken. A dish where the meat is cooked to a “fall off the bone” consistency. Essentially, it is a Bengali style Moghlai dish. That is code word for the fact that it was cooked in days where time is abundant. Now, there is that version and then there is my cheater version that tastes pretty darn good. There were no real leftovers from our Sunday family dinner, that my friends is very good, cheater schmeater good!


1/3 cup blanched almonds or cashews
1/4 cup yogurt
3 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
