Kharaash chicken

One of our favorite chicken dish made at home. It tastes as delicious as it looks! We usually associate chicken with the color red, but this dish is green is color and it teases the taste buds the moment our eyes set on it! This Kharaash chicken is usually a part of every daawat at our place and mostly its on the menu because of its demand at home :p My Ammi taught me this recipe and i loooooove making it each and every time. My sentimental values are attached to this dish!

Ingredients :
Chicken - 500 gms
Green chillies - 15 medium
Coriander Leaves - A bunch
Turmeric / Haldi powder - 1 tbsp
Thick Curd - 200 gms
Garam masala powder 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Green food color - a pinch

How we make it:

1. Grind green chillies, coriander leaves and haldi powder to a fine paste.

2. Wash and drain the chicken and fold it well with the above paste adding thick curds, garam masala powder, salt and green color

3. Marinate the chicken for atleast an hour. For best results marinate it for 3-4 hours.

4. We usually grill the chicken in our oven for around 45 mins or till its cooked well on both the sides. This is a better and healthier option since it does not include the use of oil in it, but the other option is to cook the chicken with the same mixture and then shallow fry.

All geared up to get grilled!

An excellent side dish for parties since it goes well with roti, naan or rice!
