Instant Pot Whole Chicken or Murg Musallam Recipe


Whole chicken made in the Instant Pot, pressure cooked for just 15 minutes... Murg Musallam is a popular Mughlai dish, whole chicken cooked in ground almond and poppy seeds gravy. Saffron is added to the gravy, makes this dish extremely scrumptious.  This is a rich, flavorful and delicious whole chicken recipe. I'd posted the recipe for making Murg Musallam over stove top on a wide pan, in this one I've stuffed the whole chicken with eggs. Recipe, click here. I made this recipe in the Instant Pot, skipped stuffing the whole chicken with eggs though. Cooked in poultry mode for 15 minutes at high pressure. The chicken was perfectly cooked and tasted very flavorful.
