How to Make Chicken Bamboo

  • Cut one onion into thin slices.
  • Soak dry red chillies and grind them to paste with the other onion.
  • Cut green chilli into 1 cm pieces.
  • Mix turmeric powder, salt as per taste and medium sized chickens in a bowl and place it in a pre-heated hot water bath for 30 minutes.
  • No water should be added to the mixture.
  • Remove bowl from bath and add onion-chilli paste, sliced onion, ginger-garlic paste, green chilli, sliced tomato, mustard oil and some coriander leaves to the mixture.
  • Mix them well for 10 minutes with your hand.
  • Wrap the mixture in a banana leaf into a cylinder. Cover all the sides with the banana leaf.
  • Tie it with a cotton thread so that it doesn't unfold.
  • Place it inside the hollow space of a bamboo.
