Another Parsi dish that I learned from my Mama, and it takes me down memory lane, one of our family favorites. Everyone makes sali chicken slightly. Differently, this is the way my Mama makes it (except for my twist), so I’m sharing another family secret with you lucky people!
These thin crispy fried potato straws called ‘sali’ are always demolished so quickly, so I almost always have to make extra!
‘Murgh Ma Sali’ is typically cooked with whole dried apricots. I’m not the biggest fan of apricots in this dish, so I gave it my twist and used very finely chopped dried mango. The sweetness of the dried mango really lifted this dish to another level. It was beautiful with the spices and chicken.
