Spicy Scrambled Green Chicken Fry

   
          A dry side dish of boiled and shredded chicken stir fried with onion  and a green paste made of coriander leaves, ginger and garlic. As it is a spicy variation, I liberally added 2 chili peppers, chili flakes and pepper powder. It goes well with any rice variety, especially jeera rice or naan / paratha.








  • 2 cups boneless chicken, boiled & shredded
  • 3-4 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 3 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 1" ginger
  • 2 long chili pepper, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. chili flakes
  • 1 tsp. pepper powder or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp, turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • lemon wedges, chopped fresh chili & coriander leaves to garnish (opt)


          Make a paste with coriander leaves, ginger and garlic. Keep aside. Heat oil in a non-stick pan and temper with cumin seeds followed by the onion. Saute till light brown.

          Add the shredded chicken and chili pepper, Saute till it gets a brownish tinge. Now add the green paste, salt, turmeric powder, tomato paste, pepper powder and chili flakes.

          Continue to saute for 8-10 minutes on low flame till dry. Add the garam masala powder and cumin powder. Fry for a further 2-3 minutes.

          When done add lemon juice and mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves, lemon wedges and fresh chilies and serve hot as a side dish with either plain pulao, jeera rice or naan / paratha.




                           Temper the oil with cumin seeds.




                           Add onion and saute till light brown.



                           Add the boiled & shredded chicken and red chili pepper.



                          Add the green paste, salt, turmeric powder, tomato paste, chili flakes and 
                           pepper powder. Saute for 8-10 minutes. Then add garam masala powder                                and cumin powder. Saute for 2-3 minutes.
