Hariyali Chicken/ Green Herbed Chicken


All the chicken lovers must be happy to see yet another chicken post. And all the chicken haters will be like, “oh no, here she is with a chicken recipe AGAIN,”. I’m sorry guys, i post so many non-veg recipes because i make them very often at home. My husband is a happy carnivore, hehe! But i promise, i will post some veg recipes soon even though i am a novice in that section.

But today’s recipe is all about the greens. Chicken and lots of green herbs joined hands together to create this amazing flavor packed curry named chicken hariyali. “Hariyali” means greenery in Hindi. This curry gets this name as lots of nutrient rich herbs like coriander and mint leaves are added to this.


I am so happy that i found this recipe, because it is soooo easy to prepare this. Really, the best part of this curry is that you don’t need onions. I so hate cutting onions and I’m sure many of you feel the same way. The other good thing is that you don’t have to add any elaborate spices. The flavor comes from the herbs, green chillies, lots of garlic and ginger. And the richness in the gravy is achieved from the coconut milk.
