Lahori chargha chicken is fast becoming one of the most iconic foods of Lahore. A whole chicken roast marinated in a creamy marinade. This Lahori chicken chargha is first steamed slowly to allow it to cook through and then fried for a deliciously crisp and golden outside.
if you want to mix up your Sunday roast dinner for a less than traditional chicken recipe then this delicious spicy chicken recipe is perfect for you. Serve on a bed of lettuce and a side of refreshing yoghurt chutney!
If you love spicy food like me then this Lahori chargha recipe is for you. I love creating dinner recipes that are easy for busy families, but still taste delicious. This is one of them.
This recipe originates from Lahore, a famous city in Pakistan. The recipe involves a whole chicken having its skin removed then deep cuts are added. Then the chicken is marinated in a load of spices before being steamed and deep-fried. It is absolutely delicious, and I love it!
You can alter the frying to another method of cooking like baking or air frying. The traditional way is to steam it and then deep fry it. However, feel free to alter it depending on how you want to eat it!
I like to marinate this chicken overnight to allow the flavours to fully penetrate the chicken and allow the chicken to tenderise. However, if you’re short on time then try to leave it for at least 4 hours. I know it seems like a long time, but it is so worth it!
