Green Chicken Masala

Green Masala curry is a winter favorite or just anytime. Ground mint leaves, fenugreek leaves, cilantro, green chilies bring the out the busting flavors. It can be made in the form of curry /stew/dry roast based on individual preference. It is very simple and put in no much effort, Prepare in advance recipe. After sauting the ground spices and greens, it can be stored in zipper bags for up to 3 months in refrigerator. Curry is moderate, flavorful with juicy and tender chicken.

1 medium onion
1 pod garlic

Step 1: In blender/mixer grind all ingredients listed ‘for paste’ to fine smooth paste using water as required.
