Chicken Hariyali kebab

    I went out for dinner with family to this restaurant called "The Banyan" at the heritage resorts, madurai.We werent that hungry actually but i was very much keen on hogging that particular day, since i had nothing else to do.. :P we ordered some X, Y ,Z along with some chicken hariyali kebab.. i was waiting waiting waiting,,, 10 minutes gone and still waiting, then there i see the waiter with X,Y,Z and my hariyali kebab... :D that was the awesomest kebab ever.. it looked HARA(green ofcourse) , juicy and gorgeous, along with the orange and white salad, and a greener pudina chutney... YUM :D That was when i caught the green fever, everything i saw and thought of, was green.. so i decided, why not make my own hariyali kebab.. so i surfed the "gooooogly" and found the following recipe. I also ended up making two sets of hariyali kebab today, the first set dint turn out well (am bad with microwave cooking, timing is something, that just doesnt happen for me), where as the second set was yummy and looked divine :P .. you are so welcome in my kitchen.. here is a sneak peek of my hariyali kebab, and the recipe for it.
500 gms of chicken boneless
1/2 cup chopped coriander
1/4 cup chopped pudina/mint
50 grams of curd
some salt
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chilies
1 tsp finely ground garam masala
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
half a lemon squeeze


1) Grind the coriander, pudina/mint,chillies into a fine paste
2) Add curd, salt,ginger garlic paste,garam masala, lemon juice and pepper powder to the ground pudina/coriander/chilli paste. mix all the ingredients well
3) marinate the chicken with the mix, and keep aside for a good 2 - 3 hours.
4) take a non stick frying pan, add 3 tsp of oil , when the oil is hot, fry the marinated chicken pieces in it.
5) serve it with onion rings and pudina chutney...
