Chicken with Herb Yoghurt


½ kg boneless chicken breasts

250 gr. natural yoghurt

1 onion sliced

1 inch piece of ginger root finely chopped

2 cloves garlic finely chopped

1 handful fresh mint leaves shredded

1 handful fresh coriander leaves shredded

6 green chillies, finely chopped

1 tbsp garam masala

1 tbsp cumin seeds

1 tsp turmeric

salt and pepper to taste

½ cup cooking oil


Mix green chillies and cumin seeds into the yoghurt with half a cup of water.

Mix the garam masala, turmeric, salt and pepper together, and then cover the chicken pieces with the mixture.

Pour the oil into a frying pan and fry the chicken for 2 mins, to seal it. Remove the chicken and fry the onion in the oil until it is brown. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for 2 mins.

Pour the yoghurt mixture into the pan and bring it to the boil over a low heat. When it is boiling, put the chicken pieces inside the mixture and cook for approx.15 mins.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the mint and coriander, stirring it well. Allow it to stand for 5 mins before serving.

Serve with plain boiled rice, salad, and naan, chapattis, pitta etc.

This has Taste and is a Treat.
