Meethi and Jeera Chicken

This is a Sanjeev Kapoor recipe. We have been ardent fans of his for many many years now and the first gift that I received from my hubby was a collection of his recipe books. His recipes are so simple and easy to make, not to mention that all his recipe measurements are so accurate that one could blindly follow them.


Chicken (bone in/boneless) thighs 1/2 lb
yogurt 1 1/2 cup
cumin seeds  3/4 tbsp
coriander leaves
mint leaves
olive oil  2 tsp
turmeric powder  1/2 tsp
Serrano chilies  6
black pepper  1/2 tsp crushed
salt to taste
juice of half a lemon


Marinade chicken pieces with salt and lemon for 30 mins in the refrigerator. Heat oil in a non stick skillet. Add cumin and turmeric. When the seeds turn golden, add the chicken, chilies, mint and coriander leaves. Saute for 10 mins. Now add yogurt and crushed pepper. Add salt if needed. Cover and cook till done. Sprinkle some lemon juice.

Eat hot with rice or naan.
