Green Masala Chicken Curry. Nowadays days I'm just experiment with chicken to create a new dish every time and to be honest every time my new dish is coming out very tasty. This time I was trying to cook Hyderbadi Green Chilli Chicken, but the amount of green chilli we use in that recipe I was afraid that my hubby will not be able to eat. So I change the plan and made this green masala chicken curry, actually it has the same ingredients what we use for green chilli chicken but less green chillis. It is a great dish for the people who loves spicy food and it is quite simple recipe to make. It goes well with Steam Rice, Coconut Rice or Roti..
1/2 kg chicken (cut into medium pieces)
1 medium onion (thinly sliced)
1cup chopped coriander leaves
1/2cup chopped mint leaves
5 to 6 green chilis
8 to 10 curry leafs
1 bay leaves
1tbsp ginger garlic paste
Salt to taste.
Wash and drain the water of chicken and set it aside.
In a deep frying pan/kadai, add oil, bay leaves and onion, fry the onion for minute or 2. Then add chicken and salt, mix them and allow the chicken water to evaporate.
In a mean time add all the rest of the ingredients into a mixer jar and make a smooth paste by adding little water.
Now add the grounded masala to chicken and 1/4cup of water, give a good mix and check for the salt. Then close the lid and cook till all the masala is coated well to the chicken and it has a think gravy. That will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve hot with Rice, Coconut Rice, Naan, Kerala Poratha or Roti's.
