Green Dry Chicken

I learnt this recipe from my mother-in-law. I am still learning from her whenever I visit India. I didn’t get much chance to cook with her as I moved abroad as soon as I got married,  I make sure to learn new things & recipes from her even while chatting.

  • Chicken: 1kg.
  • Onion: 1 medium chopped
  • Non-veg Masala Powder (click here): 2tsp
  • Oil: 3tbsp
  • Salt: to taste
  • Water: 3/4glass
  • Coriander: for garnish.

Note: cut chicken into 1 inch cubes.Instead of veg-non masala you can add 1/2tsp chilly powder & 1tsp coriander powder.

For Grinding:

  • Desiccated coconut: 5tbsp Buy This
  • Coconut Milk Powder: 2tbsp (to get coconut milk taste) Buy This
  • Cinnamon: 3 (inches)
  • Clove: 6
  • Cardamom: 3
  • Non-veg masala Powder (click here): 3tsp
  • Pepper: 6
  • Ginger: 1 inch/1 inch
  • Garlic: 3 cloves big
  • Coriander: 1 handful
  • Mint Leaves: 8-10
  • Turmeric powder: 1tsp Buy This
  • Onion: 1big
Note: you can use coconut instead of Desiccated coconut & Coconut Milk Powder.


I like to use non-stick pan for dry items to avoid food sticking at the bottom.

  • Dry grind the cinnamon, clove, cardamom, non-veg masala Powder, pepper & turmeric powder.
  • Add coconut, coriander, mint, ginger, garlic, onion & grind to rough texture.
Note: The mixture should be rough powder not fine powder.

  • Add oil in a non-stick pan.
  • Add onion & 1/2 tsp salt cook till onion turns light brown.
  • Add chicken cook for 2min
  • Add 1tsp salt & 2tsp Non-veg masala powder stir & close the lid.
  • Keep stirring in between.
  • Cook for 10 to 15min.
  • Add grinded Mixture & stir.
  • Cook till the raw smell goes.
  • Add salt & water.
  • Close the lid & cook for 15min.
  • Keep light stir in between.
Note: Don’t stir too much this can cause chicken pieces to get mashed up.

  • Cook till chicken gets coated, dries completely (water evaporates completely)  & the colour turns light brown.
  • Add coriander & switch off the stove.
  • The green grinded mixture will turn to brow when completely cook & gives a good taste with concentrated flavor.
Note: This item can be cooked in 2 ways dry & gravy. Those who like gravy don’t cook till it dries completely.
