Hariyali chicken recipe | Green chicken recipe – Herb based chicken curry mainly made with mint, coriander, green chilies and other spices.

About six years back when I was working in an IT company, I was asked to bring a different chicken curry for a potluck. I was then newly married and I knew to make some decent usual curries but not different ones. I wanted to try this green chicken and got the recipe from my FIL.

I was totally satisfied when I got positive reviews and it got finished in seconds. I used 2 kg chicken for making the curry and when it was finished in seconds, what else would make a cook happy?

For making this curry, its a three step process: firstly, prepare the green paste. second is to cook the chicken with other spices. Lastly, add the green paste and cook again.

To prepare the green chicken, firstly, lets prepare the green paste. For this, grind together handful of mint leaves, coriander leaves, ginger, garlic, curd and green chillies together to a fine paste. Keep the paste ready.
