Recipe by  

Hara Chicken (Green Chicken) is a chicken curry that derives its name from its colour (which it gets from the liberal use of coriander and mint leaves). Hara Chicken (Green Chicken) is a typical Indian dish with lots of spices. However, since it contains so much mint it balances the taste very well and it goes well with either steamed rice or Indian breads like Dal Paratha or Theplas as a main course for any meal

to serve 6:
2 lb
diced chicken (or chicken breast fillets)
20 - 25
coriander leaves
20 - 25
mint leaves

green chilies
2 teaspoons
lemon juice

vegetable oil

½ teaspoon

How to Cook Hara Chicken (Green Chicken)

  1. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces about ¾" (2cm) across. Peel and finely chop the onion. Place the coriander, mint, celery, green chillies, chopped onion and lemon juice in a blender and pulse several times to create a fine paste.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan and, when the oil is very hot, add the paste and sauté it until it becomes pale green in colour. Stir in the ginger garlic paste, the cumin powder and the garam masala and sauté for a few minutes until the raw masala smell disappears. Add the chicken pieces and season to taste then stir well and leave to simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Garnish with fresh cream in the centre and coriander leaves and serve hot.

Stop cooking as soon as the chicken is tender. The meat should be succulent as it's easy to over-cook chicken.

I've not made this for the simple reason I'm not convinced I would enjoy anything that is as green as this. I realsi it's the mint leaves that do it, but the appearance of something is as important as its taste and the look of this just puts me off!
