hariyali chicken recipe - how to make chicken hariyali recipe

Hariyali Chicken Recipe or Hara Masala Murgh is yet another tasty and yummy chicken recipe. It is a medium spicy green chicken gravy curry. Hirwa or Hariyali means green colour, hence its also called Chicken Hirwa Masala or Coriander Chicken as we use coriander in a considerable amount.

Chicken Hariyali Recipe

Coriander, Mint Leaves, green chillies, give a really nice green colour to the recipe hence called hariyali chicken gravy in hindi. I wanted the recipe to be in nice green colour so I added turmeric powder in very less amount and also used whole garam masalas instead of using garam masala powder. Also I skipped Red Chilli Powder as all these ingredients may change the colour of the recipe. Chicken Hariyali Recipe if prepared into a thick gravy consistency i.e. masala just stick to the chicken pieces and not more, it can be served as a starter too.
