Method

Step 1


Cut chicken into four pieces - two legs and two breasts. Make four to five half-inch deep slits on the chicken pieces.

Step 2


Apply salt and two tablespoons of lemon juice and keep aside. Grind ginger, garlic, curry leaves, whole red chillies and rice to a smooth paste with the remaining lemon juice.

Step 3


Add this paste to yogurt and whisk well to a smooth consistency. Add salt to taste. Apply this yogurt mixture liberally on the chicken pieces and leave to marinate for four to six hours, preferably in the refrigerator.

Step 4


Heat oil in a pan, roll the marinated chicken in refined flour, shake off the excess flour and shallow fry. Cook for one minute, turn over the chicken pieces and cook for another minute.

Step 5


Reduce heat and cook for five to six minutes, turning the chicken pieces frequently for uniform cooking. Remove and drain.

Step 6


Transfer the chicken to a shallow pan and keep on medium heat. Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves, two tablespoons water and cover with a fitting lid. Reduce heat and cook for five minutes on low heat or until the chicken is completely cooked. Serve hot.
