Harabhara Bewda Murga [Green Drunk Chicken]


The Bewda Murga returns, and is green and mean this time 😛

I wanted to cook with beer again, and wanted to spice the chicken with coriander. This is a simple and elegant dish dish. Beauty for the taste buds and for sight as well. It is a two part recipe, the coriander chutney to marinate the chicken with and cooking it. Let’s get started.

Part I, Chutney.

Ingredients

  1. Fresh coriander, a bunch

    Dhaniye ki Chutni [Coriander Chutney]
  2. garlic cloves – 5
  3. Ginger, about the same in volume as garlic.
  4. 1 Tomato
  5. Green Chillies – 2. Now, I had the one very spicy. Take how much you can survive, and notch it up a little higher.
  6. salt – 1 tablespoon

How to

In a mixer, put all the ingredients together, add some water and some olive oil (any vegetable oil will also do). Churn well, till you get an even paste. This is the marinade.

Now take the chicken pieces and marinate them with this chutney. Leave it for half an hour to one hour.
