Achari Chicken (Pickled Chicken Curry)

          This is a very delicious and an easy chicken curry cooked with store bought pickles. I added some red chili pickle that I had. It only requires you to marinate the chicken cubes (boneless or on bones) with the pickle and other ingredients and then saute till done.

          It is that simple. I usually make it dry to be relished as a side dish. It tastes awesome with plain Biryani, rice, paratha, naan or chapatti. It can also be wrapped in tortillas / chapattis / parathas as a roll along with some sliced onion and coriander leaves for a lunch box meal too.

  • 500 gms. boneless chicken, cubed
  • 2 tbsp. red chilies pickle
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1 tsp. ginger-garlic paste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. red chili powder or to taste
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp. oil

           Marinate the chicken with the pickle, yoghurt. ginger-garlic paste, salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder for 1-2 hours.

          Heat oil in a non-stick pan and saute the onion, garlic and curry leaves till light brown. Add the marinated chicken and cook, covered on a low flame for 15-20 minutes or till the chicken is tender.

          Sprinkle water if required and stir at intervals. Serve with Biryani, parathas, chapattis or naan.
