Green Chicken

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

 It's so funny how as a little girl, I tried to classify the color of curries in two colors, based on the color of the peppers used.., green or red :) Yes, this curry is along the same lines of classification and the method of making is as simple as it can get bi-iznillah!


 Whole Chicken cut up-2 lbs, cleaned and washed.
 ginger-garlic paste-1 1/2 tsp
 salt-to taste
 green chillies-4
 mint leaves-1 cup, washed and chopped
 cilantro-1/2 cup, washed and chopped
 lemon juice-3 tbs
 onion-1/2 sliced
 oil-2 tbs

 Method: Grind the mint leaves, cilantro, green chilllies, to a smooth paste. Marinate the chicken with this ground paste, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice for and hour. Heat oil in a pot and saute onions. Add the marinated Chicken to it and cook on high heat for ten minutes while stirring carefully. Reduce the heat and let the juices dry up a little bit. Turn off the stove and let it sit for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl. Enjoy!
