Tawa Chicken recipe or Tawa Murgh recipe is a chicken dish prepared on a tawa and hence it’s name. This dish gets cooked super fast as the heat from the tawa gets evenly distributed. It’s surprisingly easy to pull together, and trust me it’s just as good as anything ordered off the take-out menu.
The tawa chicken recipe is also one of the quickest chicken dishes that I’ve ever made, requiring negligible sautéing and simmering time. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, because I love their texture and flavor—particularly in tawa dishes. But boneless chicken thighs will work just fine, too; just be sure to cut whatever chicken you use into small, bite-sized pieces.
Tawa is nothing but a large, flat disc shaped frying pan which can be used for making dosas, chapatis, etc. Now we have made the chicken on it and hence the name Tawa Chicken recipe or the tawa murgh recipe. The entire recipe is made on a tawa/tava- a concave shaped round pan, widely used in Indian/Pakistani homes for making various flat breads like rotis and parathas. Even dosa and cheela (gram flour crepes) are made on the tawa. they are also used for shallow frying snacks like aloo tikki, shami kabab and for dry roasting spices, nuts and seeds. Other recipes made on tawa are tawa pulao, pav bhaji among plenty others. In case you don’t have a tawa, then you can easily use a frying pan or a medium skillet. But for the authentic feel, use a tawa.
While serving the tawa chicken recipe, drizzle some lemon juice on top and garnish with coriander leaves. accompany with some onion ring salad or any other vegetable salad. I served this tawa chicken recipe with some peas pulao and it was absolutely amazing. You can very well serve it with any kind of Indian bread or rice.
