Number of serving: 4
Boneless or Chicken with bones : 2 pounds

Mint: 1 - 1.5 Bunches

Cilantro : Half - 1 bunch

Onions: 3 Big

Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 spoons

Green Chilli: Around 12-15 (We wont be using red chilli powder later.)

Lemon : 1

Garam Masala : 1 -1.5 spoons

Masala : All normal kinds available handy

Curd : 5-6 spoons

Salt to taste

Oil: 4-5 spoons.


  • The day before cooking marinate the foll way:
    Take mint leaves, cilantro, onions,green chillies and blend them to make a fine paste. Wash the chicken properly and put the chicken in a bowl. Take the blended paste and put it all over the chicken. Now take the curd , garam masala , salt and add it to the mix. Squeeze lemon into it. Now mix all the contents very nicely so that every chicken piece nicely absorbs all the flavors added. Put it aside overnight.
  • Day of cooking:
    Put a kadai and add oil to it.Wait till the oil is good for frying and add the masala which includes Cardamom stick, Cloves, Elachi and anything else that you have. Add some finely chopped onions, little mint and cilantro and fry them till the onion turns little brown. Add little ginger garlic paste.Not much since we added it in the marinated mix. When you think the ginger garlic mix is also good to go, add the marinated chicken. Put the lid open for few secs and stir it.
  • Now put the lid close and let the chicken cook. (It might take about 15 - 20 minutes in medium flame).
  • Now add little garam masala powder and salt to taste. Its all upto you if you want to add red chilli power. Let it cook for few more minutes.
