Pahadi Chicken – Gluten Free
This Pahadi Chicken dish is an aromatic Indian chicken dish. This is a modern version sometimes called Pahari chicken simplified, but still keeping the stunning flavours. The term pahadi originates from pahad meaning mountain. Food in India is made with many spices and varies depending on the region. This chicken recipe is truly outstanding, not your typical curry recipe.
♥ Why is pahadi chicken so flavourful?
This Indian recipe is all about the marinade. The chicken is marinated in a thick spiced yogurt paste. The paste is made with a number of spices, fresh herbs such as cilantro and mint and yogurt. If you have the time, it is best to marinate the chicken overnight. But, if you are short on time you can marinate the chicken for two hours before cooking. The chicken is then cooked in the sauce it was marinated in. I can’t tell you how delicious the aromatic sauce is. I know, there is a number of ingredients in this pahadi chicken recipe. However, don’t let that scare you. It is mostly spices and herbs. The recipe itself is super easy. If you like Indian spices you will love this pahadi chicken dish.
This warming Indian chicken dish goes especially well with simple Indian lemon rice.
