Chicken hariyali is a delicious Indian chicken curry made with a creating a green chutney paste to add to the chicken curry. Also known as a green chicken curry; this is a beautifully fragrant dish packed fill with spices to add some heat.

This Indian chicken curry is a twist on the traditional chicken curry, but without a doubt is sure to satisfy your cravings. Serve alongside some homemade raita for a refreshing contrast and a side of white rice or chapattis!

So, if you’ve been following my recipe blog for a while now you would know that I absolutely LOVE spices. This is one such recipe that I adore because it’s got that right amount of heat that makes you just want to keep having more.

It’s very different from the normal chicken curries that I make and it’s not that popular in the UK. Unless you’re an Indian food addict or a desi yourself, you may not have even heard of it before. Trust me if you haven’t then you are missing out.

This recipe involves making a green paste using coriander and mint. The paste is similar to my yoghurt chutney and green chutney recipe with a slight tweak. Then the chicken is added to the onion tomato masala and cooked before the green paste is added. Perfection in a bowl.

You can serve this curry in multiple ways. Personally, I like to keep it simple and have it with chapatti. Nothing beats that classic combination. You could also try it with boiled basmati rice or pilau. For a real spicy kick try it with some chicken biryani!
