Green Chicken With Coconut-Coriander Sauce

Over the weekend, we had invited some of our friends for lunch. I also wanted to take some food to a friend. I had to decide what to make for lunch very quickly. While searching for recipes, I found this recipe, which I had copied down from aayi’s notebook. I gave it a try and loved the taste of it. I served it dry, but this can also be served as a gravy by adding some water and thinning the sauce down.

2 lb chicken (I used boneless tender breast pieces)
1 tea spn coriander seeds
1 cup onion
5-6 green chillies
6-7 cloves
1″ cinnamon
2-3 cardamom
1 tea spn shah jeera
1/2 cup coconut (I used desiccated coconut)
4-5 peppers
1 cup coriander leaves
1 tea spn ginger-garlic paste
1/4 cup tomatoes

Heat oil and add 1/2 cup onion, green chillies for few minutes. Add cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander seeds, shah jeera, coconut, pepper and fry till a nice aroma comes out.
Grind all with coriander leaves. Add the paste to chicken pieces and keep aside for 15-20mins.
Heat a little oil and fry remaining onion, ginger-garlic paste till onions become slightly brownish. Add tomatoes, salt fry for a min. Add chicken along with all the paste. Cook till done.

Serves : 4-5
Preparation time : 40mins

  1. Coriander seeds and green chillies are missed out in the step. Also just below the ingredients, an extra line of preparation is included.

  2. Try using a mix of coriander leaves and a few curry leaves or even better coriander leaves and Tulsi leaves mixed. A little lime juice wont go astray–if you do add lime juice, put less tomato.

  3. Hi Shilpa, I tried this recipe and it turned out great. Can you post some recipes for new moms (post pregnancy recipes). I have heard that lactating mothers are given Dinka Laddoos and Methi Laddoos. Can you post these recipes ? Also, any other post pregnancy recipe that you can share will be great. Thanks again!

    1. dink laddu is on the site. Please check under sweets. The other thing I tried was to use roasted-powdered methi in most of the cooking. I also used to mix it in buttermilk and drink (as I don’t like to eat sweets)
