How to Make Spicy Chicken rice

  • Make a paste of green chillies, ginger, and coriander using a blender.
  • Add the paste to 1/2 cup of yogurt and mix well. Add salt to taste.
  • Add the well cleaned chicken to the yogurt, mix and keep in the refrigerator for 8-10 hours (for best results, marinate the chicken overnight).
  • Heat oil and add finely chopped onions. Once the onions turn golden brown, add the dried red chillies (flakes or crushed whole chillies), turmeric and the cumin powder. Cook for 2 mins.
  • Add the marinated chicken and cook for 30-40 mins. Stir periodically to ensure that the chicken does not burn.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, add the rice and mix well. Add salt if required.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot.
