Coriander Chicken recipe - referred prominently as Dhania Chicken is a delicious curry from Bengali cuisine. Unlike other chicken curries, it is much easier to prepare and involves a diverse range of aromatic spices and herbs from our very own Indian kitchen. The fine blend of market-fresh coriander leaves, mint leaves and yogurt makes the yummy green chutney which when added to the gravy gives a special flavour and a memorable taste to this finger-licking side dish.  

Make sure you check the consistency of the gravy at every step of your cooking process, a thick consistency being the crowd favourite. This Dhania Chicken is an amazing combo when served with roti or naan.

  • How to Make Coriander Chicken (Dhania Chicken):

    2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a kadai, splutter cumin seeds.
    3. Add the onion and green chillies, saute until onions turn translucent.
    4. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for 2 minutes.
    5. Add the marinated chicken, fry until the colour of the chicken changes.
    6. In a small mixing bowl add the chopped tomatoes, coriander powder, cumin powder, and pepper powder. Add a little water and prepare the paste.
    7. Add this paste to the chicken. Fry until oil oozes out.
    8. In the mean time, prepare the green chutney.
    9. In a grinder, add the coriander leaves and the mint leaves. Add 2 tbsp of yogurt. Grind this to a fine paste.
    10. Once the oil starts oozing out of the chicken, add the green chutney and fry for 5 to 10 minutes on low flame. Cover and cook, stir from time to time so that the chicken doesn't get burnt.
