Hara Bhara Chicken – Coriander Chicken: It’s a tangy chicken cooked in cilantro sauce along with Indian spices. Light and Healthy.
Hellooo Weekend – Here We All Come !!!
These day’s I’m going through a phase of being “BORED” of eating chicken (I never thought there would come a time when I would ever say that…Sighhhhh)
But the chicken in my fridge has been calling me for a week now, so finally decided to use it to make this super easy, tangy and yummy recipe……
It’s been made by my mom a couple of times and everytime it pleases everyone.
This recipe is my favorite also because it’s cooked in less oil using yogurt (Instead of cream) and also it can be pre-made and stored for 2days in the fridge.
:: Important Notes ::
Please make a paste of onion, ginger, garlic and not used chopped version – doesn’t taste good.
- You cannot pulse yogurt and coriander together as they become overly watery and spoil the dish.
- As we are using boneless chicken, please keep an eye on it while cooking as it tends to cook and burn quickly – If you feel it’s becoming dry but not yet cooked, sprinkle some water.
- Yogurt needs to be evenly whipped making sure there is no lumps as this helps yogurt cook evenly.
- This is dry to very less curry recipe, so great for wraps/salads too.
