Achaari Murg is a delicious combination of all the pickling spices which are roasted, ground and cooked with chicken. Mustard oil gives a nice flavor to this curry. You can also substitute with any other cooking oil but the rich flavor comes from mustard oil only.
I made use of left over oil which was used to prepare Punjabi Mango Pickle and adjusted the quantity of ingredients for pickling spices.

  6. The gravy is atrociously tempting especially infused with multiple types of spices. I have to look for the mustard oil because I don't think I have used it before. Nice and delicious gravy in which the chicken pieces are drenched.
