Green chilli chicken

This is one of my mom's recipe that I like to keep original because its already perfect. This recipe has a lot of fond memories attached to it, its the type of masaledaar (spicy) stuff you expect from Indian food. you can serve this as a starter, a side dish or a main course its completely your choice . Hope you like it as much as I do:)


Boneless Chicken (small pieces) (1/2 kg)
Turmeric powder (1/2 tbsp)
Dalchini (Cinnamon) (3 medium sized pieces)
Kali miri (Black pepper) (12-15 peppers)
Zeera (Cumin)(1 tbsp)
Green chillies (6-8)
Lehsun (Garlic cloves) (9 cloves)
Kothmir (Coriander) (1 big bunch)
Oil (1 big spoon)
Salt to tate

  1. Wash the chicken thoroughly.
  2. In a deep vessel or a kadai put the chicken and add half a cup of water, turmeric powder and salt.
  3. Turn the gas on and cook on high flame with the lid on.
  4. Keep stirring the chicken every two minutes or so, till all the water evaporates.
  5. At this point add half the amount oil to the chicken and lower the flame.
  6. cook on low flame till the oil starts separating.
  7. In the meanwhile grind together coriander, green chilli, garlic and cumin.
  8. Once the oil starts separating from the chicken, add rest of the oil. (you may add more or less oil depending on your liking)
  9. After adding the oil the second time, add the coriander paste to the chicken and mix well.
  10. Give the chicken a nice stir, and cover with the lid again but keep stirring every 2 minutes.
  11. Cook till the chicken is completely cooked and gets a slight reddish color.
  12. Serve with a few onion slices and lemon:) enjoy:)
