Murgir jhol, a thin curry based chicken dish that is very common in Bengali households. This Bengali style basic Chicken curry has another name too, Sunday Chicken Curry. Because most of the time this is cooked and enjoyed during Sunday afternoon meals. When we grew up, used to have chicken mostly on Sundays, the only holiday of the week and so naturally, it was something very special.
This particular chicken curry is cooked habitually. There is not much to think about when I have done it for years. It had been a part of the childhood years. The taste and flavors have become a part of me as well, as much as the cooking process!
There is actually no documented recipe to make this chicken curry. It is versatile and you can customize it if you want. Generally, this Murgir Jhol is always characterized by its spicy red color ! This is my attempt to recreate the Sunday chicken Curry from back home. This soupy Chicken Curry goes best with hot steamed rice.
