Green chicken is the dish that has originated from the Nilgiri regions of South India. This dish is one of our family favourites and I am so thrilled to share my family recipe with you all. The addition of soya sauce is my contribution to this dish. Every time I cook this chicken curry in my tiny American kitchen, I get transported to my childhood days and the air would smell of my grandmother’s home.
To the pipping hot oil, a generous amount of onions are added, once they sweat and brown,little soya sauce was mixed for an oriental touch. A mild earthiness was created by garlic and ginger, and pleasing green colored mint-cilantro-peppers are mixed in to create a refreshing flavor to the dish. When the sauce bubbles like a hot volcano, chicken was added and the flame was simmered. In less than 30 minutes, the chicken curry will be ready.
The aromatic green paste blends beautifully with the tender chicken and unfolds the most exotic taste out of it. We just love the way it tastes: simple and perfect. A perfect accompaniment with basmati rice/ Indian flat breads (naan).
