Murgh Musallam Recipe is a traditional dish of Mughlai cuisine/Awadhi cuisine. It is typically made from a whole chicken, which is roasted with homemade ground masala. The flavors are mainly from a blend of whole spices. 

The addition of ground almond paste and onion paste as well adds in a rich texture to the whole dish. In this recipe we have used just the drumstick to create a delicious murg mussalam but you are free to use the whole chicken and cook it in the oven.
