Pudina Pepper Chicken



Pudina (Mint) has a cool sensation and its medicinal properties are well known.I am sure very few could resist this refreshing, pleasant flavor. It is used in curries, chutneys, salads and dressings. This chicken dish is flavorful and spicy and is perfect side dish for  ghee rice of chapathi

Ingredients

Chicken - 1 lb
Mint- 1/2 a bunch

Coriender leaves chopped-3 tbs
Onion- 2 medium
Ginger- 3 tsp
Garlic- 3 tsp

 Chilly Powder- 1 tsp
Coriander Powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper - 1 tsp
Garam Masala- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Lemon Juice- 1/2 lemon
Roasted coconut- 2 tsp (optional)
Salt to taste
Oil for frying- 3 tsp





Clean and cut chicken into small pieces. Marinate it with chilly powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, gram masala, salt and lemon juice and keep it aside for half an hour.

Cut onion into thin slices and make a paste of ginger, garlic , coriander leaves and mint leaves.

Heat oil in a non-stick pan and drop in fennel seeds and allow it to get roasted. Roast garlic-mint paste till there is a nice aroma. Add onions and saute till golden brown. Add the marinated chicken and stir fry for a minute. Cover and cook for four to five minutes. If you feel the chicken is too dry, sprinkle 2 tbs of water. Cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove the lid and contine cooking till all the water gets absorbed. Finally sprinkle roasted coconut powder(optional) and half tsp of garam masala. Serve hot with ghee rice or chapathi.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!!!
