  • Marination bowl & pan


For Marination :

  • 500 grams Chicken (big cut pieces)
  • 1 cup Yoghurt
  • 1 cup Coriander (finely chopped)
  • 3 tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. Pepper powder
  • 1.5 tbsp. Ginger garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp Chili powder (optional)

For Frying :

  • 2 tbsp. Butter

  • 1 tbsp. Pepper powder
  • 1.5 tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 Green chilies (sliced)
  • 1/2 tbsp. Yoghurt


  1. Prepare the marination : Add all ingredients mentioned in the marination section in the given order. Give it a good mix and let it rest for 60 minutes. *Please note – Chili powder is optional, I add it in my marination to give it a little extra spice and color.
  2. Post 60 minutes, take a pan, add butter and spread it all over. Then add the marinated chicken. (keep the remaining marination for further use)
  3. Now sprinkle garam masala powder, pepper powder and lemon juice. Give the chicken a good toss so that the spices and juice are evenly spread.
  4. Then add chopped garlic and sliced chillies.
  5. Once the chicken start to cook, add the remaining marination and yoghurt. This gives a good texture to your chicken, infusing all the ingredients into it.
  6. Fry until golden brown and then Relish!!!!
