Coriander Chicken Dry

This is a great Chicken Side dish which goes on well with any rice item.I got this recipe from a cooking column in a magazine long time ago.It was named as GONGURA chicken,but there was no sign of gongura in it.I was little doubtful about grinding the whole bunch of coriander leaves into a paste.Finally it turned out to be a different dish..of course it tasted great.

If you want it more spicy add chilly flakes at the end which would also create a good color combo.We normally do this so that Shweets can have a less spicier version.


Chicken - 1/2 lb
Onion - 1 no
Tomato - 1 no
Green Chilly - 5 no
Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
Mint Leaves
Coriander Leaves - 1 big bunch
Cinnamon - 2 no
Clove - 1 no
Cardamom - 2 no
Salt - for taste
Oil - 3 tsp

  • Wash and cut chicken into small pieces.
  • Grind the coriander leaves,mint leaves, green chillies into a coarse paste.
  • Dry roast the cinnamon, clove, cardamom and grind it to a powder.
  • Heat oil, add fennel seeds in low flame.
  • Add finely chopped onion and curry leaves and saute well.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute until raw smell is gone.
  • Add finely chopped tomato, salt, ground powder and saute well.
  • Add the green paste and allow it to cook in medium flame until oil separates.
